Data shows IE remains the leading browser worldwide
Internet Explorer is no longer the default browser in Windows, but this doesn't necessarily mean that everyone is ready to give up on it and switch to a different application.
Statistics provided by Net Applications for October 2015 show that Internet Explorer continues to lead the browser world with a share of 50.86 percent, which means that at least one in two PC users actually launched this particular browser last month.
Google Chrome is the second option for desktop users with a share of 31.12 percent while Firefox is third with 11.28 percent.
Version-wise, Internet Explorer 11 is number one with 24.36 percent, but this isn't surprising at all, given the fact that it's the default browser in Windows 7 and 8.1, two of the most-used versions of Windows right now.
