IE sees small usage drop in first month of browser ballot

The first month's browser market share data after the start of the EU browser ballot is in. If you were expecting Internet Explorer to lose market share at an accelerated pace, it hasn't happened yet. In fact, you could not tell from the data that that the browser ballot arrived last month. It has had no obvious impact in Europe, and even less so on the global scale. The browser trends that we've noted over the past several months are continuing, and they're not going to change quickly.

This past month, all major browsers showed positive growth except for Internet Explorer.

Between February and March, Internet Explorer dropped a significant 0.93 percentage points (from 61.58 percent to 60.65 percent) and Firefox increased 0.29 percentage points (from 24.23 percent to 24.52 percent). Chrome jumped a sizeable 0.52 percentage points (from 5.61 percent to 6.13 percent), Safari gained 0.20 percentage points (from 4.45 percent to 4.65 percent), and Opera budged 0.02 percentage points (from 2.35 percent to 2.37 percent).
