Microsoft 11735 Published by

Computerworld posted a story that Microsoft's Internet Explorer last month continued to shed users, losing the largest chunk of market share since December 2010, Web measurement firm Net Applications said.

During September, IE lost nine-tenths of a percentage point of share to slip to 54.4%, a record low for the browser. Last month's drop was the seventh straight decline and the most since last December, when IE fell by 1.1 points.

The beneficiaries of IE's slide were again Google's Chrome, which grew its share by seven-tenths of a point, and Apple's Safari, which gained four-tenths of a percentage point.
