Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and the Browser Wars

January 8, 2009

Today a Microsoft business client of Onsite Computer Services in New Orleans inquired about which Internet browser is best to utilize in his business: Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, Apple’s Safari, Mozilla’s Firefox, or Google’s Chrome.  His question was in response to an article posted in Monday’s Wall Street Journal claiming Microsoft is losing market share in the Internet browser market.

According to the WSJ, Microsoft’s market share in December was 68% compared to their market share in May of 74%.  Some contend the decrease in Internet Explorer market share is significant for Microsoft.  Microsoft first entered the browser war in the 1990s in a successful effort to derail competition from rival Netscape.

As Microsoft Partners, Onsite Computer Services in New Orleans recommends Internet Explorer as the browser of choice.  From our experience, Internet Explorer works on websites where other browsers fail.  Many contend that if you have a job to perform, Microsoft products are the most cost-effective solution.

Many allege Internet browsers are of strategic importance to companies like Microsoft and Google.  Browsers provide a gateway to the Internet for customers and point to the use of competing Internet services and applications.  What do you think?  Which browser do you use?
