I think IE has become a Enterprise only browser. That's why we have seen limited increases in the newer versions on IE. Enterprise rejected Vista and is slow to accept Windows 7. Both of which require a newer IE. This may slowly change as people start using IE 9 at work and may find it something they may want to use at home. But I think Microsoft made a mistake by not updating IE more frequently.

Unfortunately Chrome seems to be increasingly bloated compared to what it was a year ago so I'm not surprised its increase has slowed. It says a lot about the current state of the market that many people now have to use multiple browsers to satisfy their needs.

My thoughts exactly. i dont understand how come everybody doesnt use multiple browsers i say it on a daily basis. each browser is made for something and thats what we should use it for. Firefox and opera are great for downloading. I downloaded something once at school and the comp was administrator locked down all i could use was ie. i went to download and 10 popups came up but on firefox i never seen 1 ad when i used that site.

Firefox 'till I die, son.

Chrome's cool, but I didn't like how it always opens new processes for everything. I also just like Mozilla more than Google.

Opera is fastest on my system (In most categories), followed by Chrome, and then firefox.

chrome faster in some areas but mozilla better in other areas, I believe lifehacker and engadget post test results.

Mozilla launched yet again another mediocre Linux build. Good thing I'm sticking with Chrome.
