Internet Explorer Recent high-profile security problems with Internet Explorer have done little to dent its market share - or maybe not, according to conflicting reports on web browser use. Web analytics firm reckons that IE's global usage share is 85.85 per cent, an increase of 2.8 per cent since July 2006. Mozilla Firefox's open source browser claims second place with a share of 11.49 per cent, a decrease of 1.44 per cent since July 2006. Apple's Safari claimed 1.61 per cent (down 0.23 per cent), and Opera held 0.69 per cent of the market. However, statistics from websites tools firm Net Applications, cited by Ars Technica, paint a contrasting picture.

Sorry but what is so sexy & arousing about a percentage change in browsers ?

Like it's not that browsers arent covered E-N-O-U-G-H on OSn .

It is IMO such a boring topic to cover so many times - what does everyone get from browser stats ?

There are many other stats which are more interesting than noticing granny is using firefox instaed of IE & the inherient inevitable doom this must predict for for X - browser - ;)

.. wait .. what about OLPC browser impact - that would be more interesting IMO ;)
