NEW YORK: Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE) is rapidly growing its market share at the expense of Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome after close to a year of decline, says Internet tracker Net Applications.
Net Applications states that IE gained 0.99% in March to reach a total of 53.83% of the global market while rival browsers Firefox and Chrome saw a slight drop of 0.37% and 0.33% over the past month respectively.
Google+ users say, "I guess this means those IE commercials are working!" while others joke that it's an "awkward moment when you see someone using Internet Explorer and immediately think less of them."
