Browser Market Share, July 2007

Here is the browser market share for June 2007, based on traffic to my top site:

IE: 65.40%
Firefox: 31.13%
Opera: 1.87%
Safari: 0.73%
Mozilla: 0.60%

For the second month in a row, IE gained market share (+0.28%) while Firefox lost market share (-0.20%). Among the smaller players, Safari’s market share remained constant, an indication that the “Safari for Windows” product is not gaining much traction. I downloaded Safari for Windows when it first came out, but haven’t used it at all since the initial 2-3 days.

Browser Market Share, June 2007

Here is the browser market share for June 2007, based on traffic to my top site:

IE: 65.12%
Firefox: 31.33%
Opera: 1.94%
Safari: 0.73%
Mozilla: 0.57%

For the first time since we started reporting browser market share numbers, IE increased market share (+0.23%) and Firefox lost market share (-0.09%). The biggest loser for June, however, was Opera, which lost 0.18%. Safari gained 0.10% during June, with Safari on Windows accounting for most of the gain (0.07%).

It appears that Safari on Windows has not made much inroads into the IE/Firefox duopoly in the browser market. It is currently only an alpha product, with bugs to be worked out, so I don’t expect much change in the browser landscape before Safari on Windows is officially in production.

Browser Market Share, April 2007

Here is the browser market share for April 2007, based on traffic to my top site:

IE: 64.81%
Firefox: 31.28%
Opera: 2.21%
Safari: 0.74%
Mozilla: 0.62%

During April, IE continued its decline, losing 0.64%. What’s different from before was that not all that decline was picked up by Firefox — Firefox picked up less than half of the 0.64%, or 0.23%. The biggest gainer during April was Opera, which went from 1.89% in March to 2.21%, for a gain of 0.32%. It will be interesting to see if this positive trend continues for Opera going forward.
