IE8 Now The Worlds Top Browser

Ian Hancock Stuff

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.
