Sketchy IE Research

I've been following the slow, downward track of IE's market share, and have been watching Firefox take most of the missing share, with Google Chrome steadily building a minority share. Last I checked, IE had a solid majority (you tell me whether it is deserved or not at dbarney@redmondmag.com and we'll publish your thoughts).

Suddenly, here come a report from an obscure company saying IE is now in the minority (but in this case, the majority share is shared by several minorities such as Opera, Safari, Chrome and, of course my favorite, Firefox  -- which somehow still likes to crash regardless of which OS I run).

Whether or not these numbers are true, I love the competition. There are too few areas of true competition in IT, except for start-up areas such as the cloud.

While we're on the topic of the cloud, is there a cloud vendor you truly respect? Reveal your feelings at dbarney@redmondmag.com
