Now that the month of June has wrapped up we can see what browsers and operating systems have emerged as victorious. In both segments Microsoft is still dominating the market according to Net Applications, but there are some competitors that continue to crawl up behind them. In fact both Windows and Internet Explorer dropped in market share for June 2008.




I’ve got all of the detailed stats below including how each browser and operating system changed from May to June, but if you want a quick summary here are two pie graphs that I put together. The top one shows the operating system market share for June 2008, and the bottom one shows the top browsers.

–Web Browsers–

Both Opera and Firefox had big releases during the month of June, but neither one was made available until halfway through the month. So we might not be seeing the full results from the new releases. They both still climbed in the overall market share usage for June, and I suspect that July will be an even better month for them.

May 2008 June 2008 Change
Internet Explorer 73.75% 73.01% -0.74%
Firefox 18.41% 19.03% +0.62%
Safari 6.25% 6.31% +0.06%
Opera 0.71% 0.73% +0.02%
Netscape 0.62% 0.67% +0.06%
Mozilla 0.08% 0.09% +0.01%
Opera Mini 0.05% 0.05% 0.00%
Playstation 0.03% 0.03% 0.00%
Konqueror 0.02% 0.03% +0.01%

–Operating Systems–

I was going to breakdown the stats for the operating systems on a general basis (Windows, Linux, and Mac), but I thought it would be fun to see what the stats are for each of the individual versions. Overall Windows dropped 0.24% in market share and currently sits at 90.89%, while the Mac is approaching 8% of the total market. Here’s the breakdown for the top 10 operating systems:

May 2008 June 2008 Change
Windows XP 72.12% 71.20% -0.92%
Windows Vista 15.26% 16.14% +0.88%
Mac – Intel 5.02% 5.25% +0.23%
Mac OS 2.81% 2.69% -0.12%
Windows 2000 2.25% 2.11% -0.14%
Linux 0.68% 0.80% +0.12%
Windows NT 0.68% 0.69% +0.01%
Windows 98 0.48% 0.43% -0.05%
Windows ME 0.27% 0.25% -0.02%
iPhone 0.16% 0.16% 0.00%

I would have to say that the craziest thing about those stats is the fact that 0.25% are still running Windows ME. Yikes! My condolences go out to those people.
