"Microsoft got some good news this week when new data showed they had gained market share on rivals Firefox and Chrome last month. It might very well be a temporary data glitch, especially when news came out today that IBM was recommending that its 40,000 employees use Firefox instead of Internet Explorer. For today, however, Microsoft was very happy for the change, even if it's not quite as great as the headlines (or Microsoft) would suggest.

"A Closer Look at the Data

"According to data from a site called Net Marketshare, dating back to August 2009, IE has been steadily losing market share.

* They had a high of 66.97% in August, 2009
* It dropped steadily every month until May when it had dipped down from that high all the way to 59.75%
* Then in June it popped up again to 60.32%."
