"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 months.

"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."
