Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 (IE 8) is slowly booming

internet-explorer-8-beta-logoInternet Explorer has released a newest web browser, called Internet Explorer 8 (IE 8 ).

Usage of Firefox3, which accounted for 7.8 percent of Web usage during its beta testing, more than doubled to 18.9 percent during a three-day period after its formal release.

Microsoft is counting on IE 8 to help reverse erosion of its share of the Web browser market. Microsoft IE has been losing ground to competitors, such as Apple’s Safari, Google’s Chrome and the open-source Firefox from Mozilla.
