IE Down, But Far From Out
If the numbers from Janco Associates are real -- and I have my doubts -- Internet
Explorer's market share has dropped
to 58 percent
, with Firefox picking up 19 percent.
That leaves 23 percent for "other" browsers. Others like what? Safari
is on 4 to 5 percent of machines, but most Mac people I know (like my two sons
Nick and David) use Firefox.
While I always welcome competition, I'm scratching my head over this one. For
instance, Janco calls Google Desktop a browser, when it runs inside a browser.
Help me out. What browser besides IE and Firefox has any serious share, and
why? Answers welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org.
