    Internet explorer still has a significant market share. I found it interesting.

  2. Internet Explorer is installed on every Windows computer by default. Additionally, one has to change the “Default Browser” setting to NOT use Internet Explorer for all the pre-programmed internet browsing settings on their Windows machine. They’re still winning by brute force…

  3. have you forgotten G+??? It is the second biggest social media network….+500M users, 390M monthly active and growing fast.

  4. @frank steiner: It may be interesting to know that IE still hold some percentage of market but u must know one thing that IE is not good at ACID tests. You will soon get to listen that Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox is holding total market share..

  5. Mobile operating system market share definitely going up and Android definitely the leader!

  6. Nice information thanks alot.
