IE10 marketshare doubles since Windows 7 release

Posted on Tuesday, April 02 2013 @ 12:31:07 CEST by


ARS Technica provides an update about the marketshare of browsers. The site notes little changed over the past month, the only thing worth mentioning is that Internet Explorer 10 almost doubled its marketshare, thanks to the late February release of its Windows 7 version.
For Internet Explorer, we see the first fruits of a new Microsoft policy. When Redmond shipped Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7, it for the first time made the browser an automatic update that will install automatically on systems using the default Windows settings. (Internet Explorer 9 did get shipped as an automatic update, but only some months after the original release.)

One month on, it looks like this is immediately having an impact. After five months on the market as a Windows 8-only browser, Internet Explorer 10 had taken a 1.6 percent market share. After one month of availability on Windows 7 as an automatic update, that's grown to 2.95 percent. The automatic update is currently being enabled on a market-by-market basis. As the switch is thrown in more markets, we can only expect this to grow.
