Google Chrome may be seeing a bit of a rough patch in the browser market, at least according to some numbers, but things are also moving in strange directions elsewhere. Moving may not be the best choice of words, as the browser market has been rather static in February, even more so than usual.
The top dog, Internet Explorer, ended the month with 52.84 percent of the market, according
to Net Applications, that's just 0.08 percentage points lower than at the end of January.
Firefox, the number two browser gained a bit, going from 20.88 percent market share in January to 20.92 last month. Again, the change is so small it barely registers.
Finally, Chrome lost market share for the second month in a row
, if you call a 0.04 percentage points difference a loss. It went from 18.94 percent market share to 18.90 percent.
