Page 1 of 1
Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) is gaining market share for its' new Internet Explorer 9 web browser.
Whether or not IE9 adoption is enough to stem the tide of IE's overall declining share in the face of competition from Mozilla and Google remains to be seen.
"Just six weeks after the launch of Internet Explorer 9 we are about to reach a new milestone, as of the last day in April, IE9 is at 9.95 percent usage share worldwide on Windows 7," Ryan Gavin, senior director for IE business and marketing, said in a post to Microsoft's Exploring IE Blog,"For the entire month this averages 7.5 percent usage share on Windows 7 -- doubling the usage share number of 3.6 percent in March."
