Internet Explorer Usage Continues to Slide Downward as Chrome Goes Up

According to Net Applications Web browser data, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer usage has dipped below the 60 percent mark, while Google’s open source Chrome is making significant gains.

Ars Technica‘s Emil Protalinski broke down the numbers in the never-ending browser war.

“Between March and April, Internet Explorer dropped a significant 0.70 percent (from 60.65 percent to 59.95 percent) and Firefox increased 0.07 percent (from 24.52 percent to 24.59 percent). Chrome jumped a sizable 0.60 percent (from 6.13 percent to 6.73 percent), Safari gained 0.07 percent (from 4.65 percent to 4.72 percent), and Opera dipped 0.07 percent (from 2.37 percent to 2.37 percent).”

Firefox, Safari and Opera marketshare remains about the same, but clearly Google’s Chrome is chomping away at Microsoft’s browser usage share.
