Internet Explorer gains browser market share in March: Microsoft has proudly announced that their Internet Explorer browser gained market share in March, one of only a few times in the last five years they have showed a gain in that area.
The figures come via independent research firm Net Applications, who produces reports each month.
On a smaller scale, Internet Explorer 9 on Windows 7, which the company calls a "core metric," increased significantly, with over 50 percent of all Windows 7 users now running that specific version of the browser.
For the month, IE moved to 53.83 percent global share, up from 52.81 percent in February.
