Browser Market Getting Fun

Regular Redmond Report readers know there's nothing I like better than good, old-fashioned competition, and now the browser market is showing signs of becoming a real battleground.

Even before Google made its Chrome play, the competition was already heated. Recently, management consultancy Janco Associates claimed that IE had only a 58 percent market share. Oddly, it gave Google Desktop a 4 percent share, even though that isn't even a browser.

Janco believes the downward IE trend could continue, dropping to less than half by year's end. Hmm...and how much share will Google's non-browser have by then, I wonder.
