IE’s share fell from 87.23% to 86.56% over the same period. 

Apple’s Safari browser now has 1.93% of the market, Netscape is on 1.55%, and Opera has 0.59%.’s figures are based on user visits to 40,000 monitored websites.

The Mozilla Foundation, which distributes Firefox, issued a patch for the browser this week that fixes 10 security vulnerabilities in Firefox.
