Re-examining IE's drop below 60%: IE8 actually showed the most growth in April
However, I received an email from a Microsoft spokesperson this morning which pointed out something I'd missed initially. Despite Internet Explorer's overall slide in market share, guess which browser actually showed the most growth during the month of April?
Internet Explorer 8.
Tarran notes that IE8's gain of 1.08% was nearly double that of Chrome at .6%. Even in the European Union IE8 managed to keep pace with Firefox in terms of growth.
That's at least somewhat of a silver lining in the cloud for Microsoft... right?
