Internet Explorer gets some loving, gains back market share mildly

Microsoft's Internet Explorer gains back some market share in the month of March.

We have reported previously about how Chrome passed Internet Explorer in market share for a couple of days, but it seems as though Microsoft has turned the browser around and gained some market share back. The results from Net applications regarding March usage show an increase in Internet Explorers use with a matching decrease in FireFox and Chrome.




IE's usage share climbed from 51.9% to 53.8% whereas FireFox went from 21.8% to 20.6% and Chrome from 19.1% to 18.6%. Safari saw a microscopic jump in usage, amounting to about 0.1% increase ending at 5.07%. It's clear that Internet Explorer is still down from where it used to be, but Microsoft has done some good things from IE8 to IE9.


However, once you jump ship to another browser, it's near impossible to go back. It is worth it to check out Internet Explorer, however, because it seems as though it has done a lot of things right. Tell me, which browser do you use?
