ARS Technica reports Google Chrome's marketshare continues to slide as the browser fell to 18.86 percent in September, a drop of 0.27 percent. Internet Explorer remains the most widely used browser with a marketshare of 53.63 percent, while Firefox takes the second place with 20.08 percent.
Internet Explorer and Firefox are essentially unchanged, each gaining 0.03 points to 53.63 and 20.08 percent respectively. Chrome has dropped 0.27 points to 18.86 percent, Safari picked up 0.16 points for a total of 5.26 points, and Opera edged up slightly, by 0.04 points to 1.62 percent.
Firefox and Internet Explorer have both stopped shedding users to Chrome, halting Google's growth. This may merely be a temporary reprieve, but it may be indicative of a broader trend: there's a lot less reason to switch to Chrome than there used to be.
