    More proof that Firefox’s biggest rival is not Chrome but Internet Explorer.

    These figures exist because IE8 increased a lot, but IE6 and 7 didn’t rise, so it’s good.

    My question is why did IE rise?

    A few people are having problems with the new Flash update, and since it was pushed alongside Firefox 3.6.6, people think they have a problem with Firefox itself… They’re probably switching to Internet Explorer, which they don’t have a problem with, because Internet Explorer uses an entirely different Flash plugin (and is probably not up to date either). Could be that… Or it could be the summer thing…
