IE suffers security concerns, loses market share

Monday, 12 July 2004, 1:59 PM EST

Internet Explorer last month saw its market share drop for the first time this century, according to WebSideStory. Total market share fell by 1 per cent in June.

"It's the first time that we've seen a sustained trend downward for (Microsoft)" said Geoff Johnston, an analyst with WebSideStory. "We have a very steady trend. It's been about a month, and every day we have a steady incremental change."

Internet Explorer has held more than 95 per cent of the browser market since June 2002, and until June had remained steady with about 95.7 per cent of the browser market, according to WebSideStory's measurements. Over the last month, however, its market share has slowly dropped from 95.73 per cent on June 4 to 94.73 per cent on July 6.
