Internet Explorer worldwide usage: the state of play

With Windows 10 released today, along with the new Edge browser (that we should assume will ultimately kill off IE – it should already have happened!) it’s a good opportunity for a quick rundown of the status of IE on the web.

Stats

Netmarketshare.com has a good browser market share chart. The IE bits:

  • IE6: 0.52%
  • IE7: 0.26%
  • IE8: 13.58%
  • IE9: 6.76%
  • IE10: 5.55%
  • IE11: 27.22%

Automatic updates

The lack automatic updates in IE doesn’t help to get people onto the latest version. However, that all changes with Windows 10, as the Edge browser will support automatic updates.

However, it’s not a perfect scenario as this article shows.
