IE Loses More Marketshare To Safari, Chrome, And FireFox…. Chairs Will Be Thrown Over This At Microsoft HQ

Microsoft via their Internet Explorer browser continues to lose marketshare in the browser market to Safari, Chrome, And FireFox. The latest figures from Net Applications gives IE a 67.55% share of the market at the moment, which is a 1% slide since last month. Firefox is up to 21.53% while Safari is up to 8.29% and Chrome is up to 1.12%. All of which are gains over the previous month.

Since March 2008, IE has lost over 7%. I’m guessing that Microsoft is betting that IE 8 which has a release candidate out in the wild will help to stop the bleeding. But perhaps the game is already over. We’ll see when IE 8 actually ships.
