Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser is continuing to lose market share to rival browsers, according to web analytics company Net Applications.

Internet Explorer was used by 68.15% of surfers monitored in December, down from 69.77% in November and 71.27% in October, according to Net Applications figures.

IE's share has slipped from about 75% since the start of 2008, with Apple's Safari browser, Mozilla's Firefox and Google's Chrome offerings all profiting from IE's demise.

Firefox's share now stands at 21.34%.
