IE11 Surges To Double Market Share, Chrome At Two Year Low

December

2

The latest numbers from Net Applications show IE11 making big gains in the last month.  IE11 was released concurrently with Windows 8.1, but was not released on Windows 7 until early November.  IE11 gained 1.78  percentage points in November, moving from 1.49 percent to 3.27 percent.   IE10?s market share declined 1.44% to 17.50% largely due to users upgrading to IE11.  IE9 market share continued to slip to 0.24 percentage points to 9.25 percent.  IE8 continues to be the most popular browser with 21.74% market share, slipping 0.2% from last month.   Windows XP users cannot upgrade beyond IE8, I suspect IE8 will see a dramatic decline after WinXP hits end of life in 2014.  IE7 gained 0.03% to 1.34% overall, and IE6 lost 0.1% to 4.92% overall.  To summarize:

  • IE11 – 3.27%
  • IE10 – 17.5%
  • IE9 – 9.25%
  • IE8 – 21.76%
  • IE7 – 1.34%
  • IE6 – 4.92%

Overall IE now controls 58.36% of total browser market share, edging ever closer 60% which I think will be important for mind share.  Overall Firefox controls 18.54 percent market share, down 0.16% from 18.70 percent in October. Chrome ticked up 0.2% to 15.44% overall.
