Microsoft Corp.’s Internet Explorer web browser had a March 2009 market share of 72.23%, up from 69.72% from a year ago but still less than the 78.69% share it had in March 2007. Mozilla Corp.’s Firefox browser had the second-highest March 2009 share at 17.18%, research firm Janco Associates reports.

Google Inc.’s Desktop and Chrome browsers combined had a March 2009 market share of less than 3%, Janco says.

"The major browser findings of the study are: Microsoft`s Internet Explorer`s market share has stabilized and Google`s Chrome is a non-event," says Janco CEO Victor Janulaitis.

Janco’s findings are included in its recently released report, “March 2009 Browser and Operating System Market Share White Paper.”
