Internet Explorer might no longer hold 96 percent of the browser market like it did back in 2002, but Microsoft’s browser still remains hugely popular. Firefox and Chrome took large bites out of IE’s dominance, but they have yet to topple it, and don’t look set to do so any time soon.

According to new figures from Net Applications, Internet Explorer 8 is the most popular browser on the desktop with 23.52 percent global market share. And it’s not the only incarnation of IE in the top five either.

In second place is Internet Explorer 10, helped by its integration in Windows 8 no doubt, with 15.36 percent.

Firefox 22 makes an appearance at three with 11.67 percent, followed by… hands up if you guessed Google’s browser? Put your hands down, you’re wrong. It’s IE9 with 9.69 percent. Chrome 28 rounds out the top five with 8.98 percent, followed by Chrome 27 with 6.32 percent.

Combined, Internet Explorer’s total market share in July 2013 was 56.61 percent, followed by Firefox with 18.29 percent and Chrome with 17.76 percent. Safari has 5.42 percent and Opera a lowly 1.49 percent.

The mobile/tablet results naturally show a very different story. There Safari is king with a whopping 58.75 percent thanks to its iOS integration, followed by Android (20.59 percent), Opera Mini (9.42 percent), Chrome (4.44 percent), BlackBerry (2.32 percent) and Internet Explorer (1.88 percent).

Hello!

This message is to notify you that one of your posts has been deleted from 'Internet Explorer remains three of the top five web browsers'.

I wonder what post it was that a Moderator said they removed from here? As far as I know I only made one Post on this topic and all I said was " IE & Firefox is what I like.

A lot of companies still use IE as their main browser.

I think the main reason is due to the popularity of intranets back in 1998-2003(not sure of these dates hehehe!) that makes them think there is only IE browser. ;)

my company has IE and an intranet and the reason is they do not want or need every computer to have access to the real internet out there... we rely on our systems way to much to have some bonehead surfing porn and or doing other stupid things things that WILL screw it all up
