According to Net Applications market share figures for January 2010 IE8 has just taken the world’s most used browser ‘top spot’ away from IE6.  The current top 5  and their market share now read as follows;

  1. IE8 – 22.31%
  2. IE6 – 20.07%
  3. Firefox 3.5 – 17.01%
  4. IE7 – 14.58%
  5. Firefox 3.0 – 5.29%

The change in fortunes for IE6 is thought to be generally due to the decline in use of Windows XP.
