Browser Market Share, October 2008

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

IE: 55.44%
Firefox: 37.65%
Google Chrome: 3.24%
Opera: 1.98%
Safari: 1.11%
Mozilla: 0.44%

IE lost 1.63% in October, while all 5 other browsers gained share, led by Firefox at +1.33%. Google Chrome’s share increased very slightly from 3.21% to 3.24%, a sign that Google Chrome isn’t really gaining traction. Perhaps the market really doesn’t need to have that many alternatives to IE?
