The July browser market share report is out from Net Market Share, and it shows Microsoft Internet Explorer still holding a majority of the market share, though that percentage is declining.
The July market share for all versions of IE is at 52.71 percent, down from 53.68 percent last month, and 60.74 percent a year ago, according to Net Market Share, which tracks key Internet tech usage market share.
Mozilla Firefox (at 21.47 percent in July) and Opera (at 1.65 percent) both saw small monthly and year-to-year share declines. But Google Chrome is up to 13.46 percent from 7.16 percent last year, and Apple Safari is up to 8.1 percent from 5.09 percent last year.
Ars Technica predicts that this means IE, though still the dominant browser, is going to lose its majority position by the end of the year.
