"According to the latest browser market share figures, Microsoft
saw its Internet Explorer (IE) product continue to slide.
"However, as Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT) IE dropped, Google's
(NASDAQ: GOOG) Chrome browser continues to pick up speed, even
outstripping Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL) Safari in the past two
"That's according to the latest market share figures for January
from Web analytics firm Net Applications.
"Microsoft's IE finished January with a total of 62.18 percent
of the market, down slightly more than a half a percentage point
from December's 62.69 percent. That continues IE's glide path since
this time last February, when the browser enjoyed 69.23 percent of
the market, and way down from market dominance of 90 percent and
higher a few years ago."
