Browser Market Share for Aug. 2010

Posted by Bob Zenith on September 3, 2010

The results are in; during August of 2010 browser market share:

Internet Explorer is down 0.34 points to 60.40%

Firefox is up 0.02 points to 22.93%

Google Chrome is up from 0.36 points to 7.52%

Safari is up 0.07 points to 5.16%

Opera’s is down 0.08 points to 2.37%

It’s nice to know that people are finally starting to switch away from IE, but why are they going to Chrome? Why would you want Google to know all the site’s you are visiting? Google already has a monopoly over web searching – I certainly hope they don’t get a monopoly on browsers too.

Please download either Firefox or Opera; heck, even Safari is better than IE and Chrome…

* An interesting tidbit; from this blog’s site meter results for browser share, I see that the majority of readers use Firefox (75%), but some of who need to dump your love affair with Internet Explorer…

    If you don’t like Chrome because of its privacy issues (I agree) but still like the interface, then think about SRWare Iron.
