Browser Market Share

Not a month goes by recently where the IT press writes about the downfall of Internet Explorer and the rise of Chrome.

I read today on ConceivablyTech that FireFox market share is close to overtaking Internet Explorer in Europe. As the article states Europe is a very big place so what is the reality in the UK.

I have examined browser usage stats for a couple of large UK websites. The trends were the same across the sites which have different audiences. As can be seen below the game is far from over for Internet Explorer. Whilst IE6 and IE7 usage is dropping IE8 usage is rising. Chrome is indeed increasing but at the expense of Safari.
