re: Microsoft Releases IE 11 Preview For Windows 7
Browser market share depends a lot on who you ask. In one of its blog posts today, Microsoft cited Net Applications, which tracks users to determine browser market share and shows IE ahead by a wide margin. On the other hand, Statcounter, which is also cited in a lot of articles, tracks page views instead of users. Its most recent data suggests Chrome is kicking IE's tail. The extent to which IE is winning or losing depends a lot on sampling methodology-- but however you slice it, a lot of people continue to use IE, regardless of other options. For what it's worth, I don't often use IE 10 on PCs, but I like it quite a bit on Windows tablets, and I think I'll like IE 11 more.
