After numerous European antitrust investigations Microsoft last month was forced to provide users with a ballot installation screen that allows them to choose between Internet Explorer, Safari, Google Chrome, Opera and Firefox.
Unfortunately for Microsoft, according to Statcounter, IE in France alone has seen a 2.5 percent drop since the program was implemented just over 30 days ago. Italy has also seen a drop of 1.3 percent and Britain lost 1 percent of their IE user in the same time period.
While the drops may not have Microsoft worrying too much at this time, the companies 62 percent lead could end up looking more like their U.S. market share which has been chipped away largely by Mozilla’s Firefox and Google Chrome.
Who do you vote for in the poll? I’m on my Mac using Firefox 3.6, enough said for me.
