Not sure how reliable the stats source is, but this CNET post (http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-10426369-93.html) shows IE dropping 7+% share last year. Compares to FF, Chrome, Safari, and Opera.

Nice to see chrome rising by more than 3% usage over the year. Not the best for development but by far the fastest browser.

Reminds me of Steve Ballmer being quoted as saying Safari and Chrome are rounding errors. Pretty funny.

I wonder how long it will be before we can see IE slip from the top spot?

I am not suprised IE8 is annoying especially when you start it up for the first time and it prompts your for settings. I use Firefox and love it! Chrome is not bad but I prefer my FF.

Chrome however managed somehow to break my Firefox profile.

Unfortunately because of the way IE is packaged, it will likely never lose the top spot. Frequently the best technical product is not the market winner as a result of marketing and user perceptions. I would venture to say that a large percentage of browser users aren't even aware that there are better solutions - they don't care because they aren't "power users".

I love my FF and all of it's add-ons!

As of March 1, European users are offered a choice to switch to or install other browsers with Windows Update. In the first week, Opera says their downloads have tripled while Firefox states they had up to 100K downloads from the ballot box.

Even before then, IE was not the majority browser in several countries there.

Reuters is reporting (http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE62L1KE20100322) IE lost up to 2.5 percent market share last month and Firefox and Opera reporting large increases in downloads.

Nice info, the trend is quite clear. What do you think the occasional up-ticks in the IE usage are coming from?

New Windows installations when people are forced to use IE to download a different browser.
