New data from Net Applications, who’s in the business of analysis Internet-related stuff, shows that Internet Explorer for the second month in a row has been able to increase its market share, after having been on the decline for several months.

In July, Microsoft Internet Explorer accounted for 60.74% of all browsers, up 0.44% compared to June and up 0.99% since May where Internet Explorer was at its all-time lowest.

Opera and Safari is also gaining, which means the biggest loser is now Firefox. Firefox is down 0.9% compared to June and is now at 22.91%. Firefox best month was November 2009 with 24.72%.

Chrome, for the first time, did not see a market share gain but a small decrease by 0.08% back to 7.16%.

Latest Firefox 3.6.3 compeltely screwed Flash (especially HD videos)… On a massive CPU which could handle flash at around 40% utilization, I am now on about 99% for the same videos just after upgrading to 3.6.3

Guess what .. I don’t get that problem with iE- so there’s the reason for one big part of the decline –

Let’s just get Flash out of here and begin using HTML5 for videos 🙂

Now, this is something new to me. IE actually gaining market. That too without any new release.

Yeah, I was surprised too. By the way, please use a real name and not keywords – if you want a ‘dofollow’ link to your site, otherwise I make them ‘nofollow’.

I still like Firefox over the other browser since it has a lot of plug-ins which makes life easy for webmasters.

Great! That’s an excellent achievement this year. Gaining a big share in the market is not easy especially in times of recession. Fortunate those companies that able to survive. Keep up the good work!
