Despite Internet Explorer 9 Beta, IE Loses Ground

Not very surprising considering that add-ons slow down IE.

Despite the fact that the Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) beta accounts for 0.25 per cent of the current global usage share during the second half of September, the overall share for Internet Explorer managed to slide by three-quarters of a percentage point.

As of October 1st, Microsoft's IE browsers accounted for 59.7 per cent of all browsers in current use around the world. This now stands as the lowest figure ever recorded for Internet Explorer
and, worse yet, Microsoft has somehow managed to erase any gains that the browser managed to make
this past summer.

Seemingly, the only bit of good news Microsoft can take from the month of September is that IE8 continued to experience small gains, with
the total number of IE8 browsers currently in use rising to 29.1 per cent.
