It’s been interesting to watch the trends in browsers accessing my site. I last wrote about this in December 2008. At the time, people using Internet Explorer to access my site still had a slight edge (41% of visits) over those using Firefox (39%). That was a huge change from August 2007 when Explorer was running 63% and Firefox was at 27%.
In just three months, the numbers have shifted again. Now Firefox is the leading browser for people visiting my site. You can see the numbers in the graph to the right. It appears, however, that Explorer is losing users to Safari and Chrome rather than Firefox. In December those two browsers accounted for 18% of the visitors, and three months later 23% of the visitors are using those two browsers.
Any way you cut it, Explorer is no longer the dominant choice for web browsers.
Have you recently switched? If so, why?
