Microsoft Flops and Loses Another 7% of its Browser Market in 12 Months

Janco and the IT Productivity Center have just released its Browser and Operating System Market Share White Paper. The major findings are that Microsoft's IE browser market share has continued to erode and has fallen to 58.50% versus 65.48% (loss of 6.96) in August 2007 and 82.99% (loss of 24.49%) in August 2005; Firefox has maintained its number 2 browser position and now is used by almost 19% (18.94%) of all users; Google Desktop has over 4% (4.01%) of the market; and Time-Warner made a strategic error in abandoning Netscape as users continue to use Netscape even though AOL no longer supports it.
