Among the Internet Explorer versions, IE11 showed a slight slip by 0.25% from 17.03 percent to 16.78 percent. Internet Explorer 8 remains the most popular browser in the market with about 21.56% market share. Developer’s nightmare IE6 is now at 3.52%, we expect the number to go down in the coming months as Microsoft has ended the support for Windows XP in which it was the default browser.
