IE 11 now approaching Safari's install numbers

Microsoft's Internet Explorer 11 web browser more than doubled its share of the worldwide browser market in the month of November. This according to new figures from research firm Net Applications, which showed Internet Explorer 11 at 3.27 percent of the worldwide web browser market. The November surge saw IE11 leaving Opera far behind, and the Microsoft-made browser is now approaching Apple's Safari browser in terms of market share.

Net Applications' figures show Internet Explorer on the whole still far in the lead in terms of the global browser market. Internet Explorer 8 holds 21.74 percent of the browser market, down slightly from 21.76 percent in October. Internet Explorer 10 holds 17.5 percent, down from 18.94 percent in October, and IE9 holds 9.5 percent. All Internet Explorer builds combined for 58.36 percent of the browser market.



Mozilla's Firefox browser was in second place with 18.54 percent share. Chrome held 15.44 percent, up from 15.42 percent in October. Safari and Opera held 5.9 and 1.39 percent, respectively.
