Microsoft's IE Sinks While Google Chrome's Market Share Triples

Internet Explorer continues to its five year slide downward. In five years, it has lost 30 percent market share. Google Chrome, meanwhile, has more than tripled in market share since last year.
The browser landscape continues to slowly change



Like the Romans defending the besieged fortresses of their once expanding kingdom, Microsoft's Internet Explorer grimly faces Mozilla's Firefox and Google's Chrome browsers.  In 2005, Microsoft had a huge lead controlling roughly 90 percent of the internet browser market.  However, over time it saw its empire decay as it failed to keep up speed-wise, failed to provide web standards, and failed to foster an add-on community.

The latest numbers illustrate these concerns.  According to market research firm Net Applications, from March 2010 to April 2010 Microsoft's Internet Explorer dropped from 60.65 to 59.95 percent of the market.  That's down 7.82 percent from a year ago and represents a continuation of Microsoft's browser woes.
