Browser Market Share, April 2011

Here is the browser market share for April 2011, based on traffic to my top site (number in parentheses shows change from March):

IE: 38.78% (-1.05%)
Firefox: 35.62% (+0.23%)
Google Chrome: 21.33% (+0.79%)
Safari: 1.84% (+0.02%)
Opera: 1.76% (+0.03%)

For the second month in a row, IE lost more than 1% market share. All the other major browsers gained market share at IE’s expense. Google Chrome was again the winner, gaining 0.79% during April. Firefox gained 0.23% and is now only 3.16% behind IE. This is the smallest gap between IE and Firefox since we started tracking.
