Firefox loses share to Internet Explorer


We’re use to hearing about Mozilla Firefox taking market share away from Microsoft. As more and more stories circulated about Firefox’s alternative goodness, we at Tech Digest sometimes wondered whether Firefox would one day be as big, or bigger, than Microsoft’s Internet Explorer . However it looks as if Firefox has had a bit of a set back after losing market share to IE, for the first time. A Netapplications survey of 40,000 users showed Firefox use down last month from 8.71 to 8.07, and Microsoft’s Internet Explorer up from 86.56 to 87.2.
