Is there a new Browser?

A brief look at the 'Browser Statistics' at www.w3schools.com, all browsers except IE7 have been loosing their respective market shares as of June 2006, compared with their market share in Jan, 2006 respectively.


One can clearly see that IE7 has moved up a little from 0.2% in Jan 2006 to 1.6% in June, 2006, all other browsers have been loosing their respective shares. Firefox is there without any major gain. It has 25.0% in Jan, 2006 and stayed at 24.9% in June with little fluctuations on either side in between. So there is literally no or little growth in the Firefox users. While Mozilla, Netscape, Opera, IE5 and IE6 have lost little of their market shares.











































































2006 IE7 IE6 IE5 Ffox Moz N O
June 1.6% 58.2% 4.3% 24.9% 2.2% 0.3% 1.4%
May 1.1% 57.4% 4.5% 25.7% 2.3% 0.3% 1.5%
April 0.7% 58.0% 5.0% 25.2% 2.5% 0.4% 1.5%
March 0.6% 58.8% 5.3% 24.5% 2.4% 0.5% 1.5%
February 0.5% 59.5% 5.7% 25.1% 2.9% 0.4% 1.5%
January 0.2% 60.3% 5.5% 25.0% 3.1% 0.5% 1.6%

Is there a new Browser in the market that is stealing these small portions of market share? The stats report indicates that they have not shown anything with less than 0.5% market share. So it seems there are multiple browsers that are gaining some ground little by little somewhere in the world.
