While Internet Explorer 11 may be in second place when it comes to the browser market share, there is no shying away from the fact that Internet Explorer 8 has been the top browser for quite some time now. Internet Explorer 8 made its debut with Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system, which, not surprisingly, also dominates in market share.
According to the latest data from NetApplications, Internet Explorer 8 holds a 20.89% market share. Internet Explorer 11 is in second place with a 17.03% share, while Internet Explorer 9 holds a 9.05% share. Google's Chrome 34 holds a 8.81% share, while Mozilla's Firefox 29 holds a 8.48% share.
Internet Explorer 11 is close to taking over Internet Explorer 8, but it will take a few more months. Windows 7 currently commands 50% of the operating system market share, having recently increased to 50.06%.
