Firefox loses share of browser market

Firefox’s share of the web browser market has slipped against Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.

Firefox’s share of the web browser market has slipped against Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.

Web analytics company NetApplications says the open source Firefox browser from the Mozilla Foundation had 8.07% of the browser market in July, compared to 8.71% in June.

NetApplications said Firefox’s decrease was mirrored by the same increase in use of Internet Explorer, which saw its share increase from 86.56% in June to 87.2% in July.

NetApplications gathers its data from users visiting 40,000 monitored websites.

Apple’s Macintosh Safari browser experienced modest growth to 2.13% of the market. Other browsers saw little change.

Firefox’s share may have been affected by a number of serious security flaws reported during July.
