Is Internet Explorer 8 losing the browser war? Can we tell yet?
News reports from earlier this week said that IE8's market share was taking a hit as bugs prompted users to revert back to IE7 almost immediately. Hourly data from Net Applications, however, suggests that drops in the browser's adoption rates have not been particularly steep, and puts IE8's most recent market share at 2.14 percent.
IE8 averaged about 2.3 percent for Tuesday, settling at 2.14 percent as of 1 p.m. Eastern time after an all-time high of 2.61 percent earlier that morning.
