A timely reality check, the week before the introduction of IE8, from my Burton Group colleague Craig Roth; see the full post for stats and more insights
I just checked the most recent browser stats and, no surprise, IE is still keeping it’s grip on the browser “market” (can it be a market if it’s free?). A browser study I did in 2005 of 217 organizations found that 89% had some form of IE (mostly IE6 at the time) as their desktop standard. At the time 17% of respondents said they had considered changing their browser standard. Corporations, governments, and non-profits also influence consumer browser habits since they create the majority of sites that consumers browse.
