Browser Wars Getting Closer
With the growing number of web browsers out today it proves a tough challenge to develop across all browsers. I try to keep tabs on the current browser share in the market, to make sure you can at least cater to the masses. A look at the latest numbers shows that Internet Explorer is still the beast in the market, at 67.5%. That number is falling sharply though. Just last March they had a 74.8% share of the market. So the gap is closing. Firefox is slowing catching them, coming home second at 21.5%. That number is up from their 17.8% share in March.
Browser share as of January 2009:
