Internet Explorer has reversed a years-long slide in market share, at least for the month of June, growing at the expense of Firefox. According to data released by analyst firm Net Applications, use of Internet Explorer increased from 59.8 percent to 60.3 percent. Conversely, Firefox dropped 0.51 percent to 23.8 percent, PCMag.com reports. Chrome and Safari also rose slightly last month.
Europe was the highest growth area for Internet Explorer, with a 0.88 percent climb, says PC Pro. The research suggests that users in Europe are still choosing Internet Explorer despite the mandated browser ballot.
