But all those sites are pretty much consumer only numbers. When you take a look at business usage the percentages change back into IE favor by a wide margin. IDC published a report with backup for how it was put together.MS still appears to have about 50% of the consumer market and I suspect that it actually has more based on where the numbers come from.Aa for running IE on XP the site where I works runs 8 on hundreds of computers without issue and hopefully by year-end will have everyone on Windows 7 and IE 9.But since MS does not sell IE or make money from it the choice of browswer has little effect on MS's long-term prospects. The sales figures for Windows 8 on the other hand will be significant to the future bottom line.-- Mark --
