October’s Web browser numbers are in and Internet Explorer numbers are plunging yet again.
Based on the report, IE is no longer the default web browser, after holding the title for more than a decade. Currently, IE only maintains 49.6 percent of web traffic.
According to Netmarketshare.com, Safari’s maintains 62.17 percent of mobile traffic and 52.63 percent of desktop traffic.
It is probable that the decline in IE’s web traffic share is a reflection of their absence from the mobile and tablet markets. Apple, which owns Safari, produces the ever-popular iPhone and iPads.
Firefox is the second most popular web browser, accounting for 21.20% of traffic, followed by Google Chrome at 16.60 percent.
As IE loses its stronghold on web traffic, we are curious as to which browser you prefer to use. Take our poll by clicking here.
