"Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE) browser continued its slow slide in April and, for the first time, its market share fell below 60 percent -- although not by much, according to one market research firm.

"Global use of Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT) IE slipped slightly more than half a percent in the month, but crossed what may be a psychological barrier with the drop to 59.95 percent, as opposed to 60.65 percent in March, according to Web analytics firm Net Applications.

"Vince Vizzacarro, executive vice president of marketing for Net Applications sees that 60 percent mark as troubling, but not necessarily a harbinger -- at least not yet.

""They've [Microsoft] been losing share consistently ... [but] 50 percent is the big mental barrier," Vizzacarro said."
