IE closing in on Navigator share

Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE) is making giant strides, according to US analyst Zona Research.

Zona found that IE was the most used browser on 28 per cent of 211 sites checked, up from just eight per cent when the same tests were conducted in August. Netscape Navigator remains dominant with a share of 70 per cent but that is down from August's 83 per cent. Zona also notes that most users had both browsers installed.
