According to data from StatCounter, Internet Explorer has dipped below the 50%-mark in its global share of the Internet browser market.
StatCounter shows IE at 51.34% of the market in August 2010; by the end of September, IE was holding on to just 49.87% of the browser market. The browser also shows a drop of nearly 10% year over year.
This is the first time IE has fallen below the halfway point in market share, and from where we sit, the glass is looking half empty.
These losses come in the face of steady growth from Firefox () over the past several years and speedy gains by Chrome () in recent months.
During the same month that IE sank to its all-time low, Firefox grew by about half a percent to 31.5%, while Chrome added almost a full percentage point to its share of the market.
