IE Share of Browser Market Falls Below 90%
The open-source browser Firefox has increased its market share to nearly 7%, up from 3% in October. America Online's Netscape browser has a 2.2% share.
Not helping Microsoft's cause is IBM's recent endorsement of Firefox. Big Blue is encouraging its 300,000 employees worldwide to adopt the browser.
IE remains strong in Asia, commanding a 98% share in China. But in Germany, where some government offices have adopted Firefox, IE's market share is below 70%.
