Internet Explorer marketshare drops below 65 percent

Posted on Monday, November 02 2009 @ 21:25:45 CET by

Electronista reports data from Net Application shows Windows' marketshare dropped to 92.52 percent last month, while Mac OS X hit a new high with a marketshare of 5.27 percent. The third place goes to Linux with a marketshare of just 0.96 percent and the rest is split between mainly mobile operating systems. The site also notes that Windows 7 now represents 2.15 percent of the market.

Internet Explorer is still the dominant browser but it hit a new low in October by falling to 64.64 percent, while Firefox rose to 24.07 percent. Chrome and Safari also stole marketshare from IE, these browsers now stand at 3.58 percent and 4.42 percent, respectively.
It's unclear whether the trend will continue. Microsoft chief Steve Ballmer himself expected little direct help from Windows 7 in the short term as most users are only likely to buy Windows 7 pre-installed on a new PC rather than as a mid-cycle update from XP or Vista. The necessity of wiping a system clean to upgrade from XP to 7 also creates a barrier that Apple has exploited in ads, claiming that users may as well switch to a Mac if they need to start from scratch.
