Although Chrome is still far from the dominant browser with just a 15.51% share, it is slowly catching up with Firefox, which dropped slightly to a share of 22.57%. Internet Explorer remains the market leader with a bigger share than Chrome and Firefox combined.
Perhaps more notable is Internet Explorer 9's improvement to almost 8% of the market because of the fact it isn't compatible with Windows XP.
Starting with August's figures, Net Applications has revised their reporting to separate mobile browsing, which accounted for 6.4% of the market. It includes all iOS, Android, Blackberry, Symbian, Windows Mobile and Java ME devices.
Console browsing is also broken out separately, although it accounts for a negligible percentage of web browsing.
