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 OneStat.com 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 ?"

Because it hasn't happened in years?

Because browser change is supposed to be subject to the law of 'inertia'? (people won't change products if they see no reason to, or reason not to [doesn't matter if the reasons are good or bad] )

Because now, finally, there's a browser that's changing the rules? And forcing IE to better respect the rules (standards etc.)?

That's exciting enough to me! ;)
