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. Hmm.

Help me out. What browser besides IE and Firefox has any serious share, and why? Answers welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
