Browser Market Share, August 2008

Here is the browser market share for August 2008, based on traffic to my top site:

IE: 58.86%
Firefox: 37.57%
Opera: 1.97%
Safari: 1.06%
Mozilla: 0.44%

In August, Firefox built on to the 1.19% gain in July, adding another 0.16%. IE continues to see a download trend, although it lost only 0.2%, compared to a 0.88% loss in July. None of the smaller browsers showed any significant changes.

It has been over a year since Apple released Safari for Windows. Judging from Safari’s distant #4 ranking, we can safely say that Apple’s efforts in broadening its Safari reach into the Windows market have failed.
