Starting sometime around the first of March, Microsoft is going to give Europeans an obvious chance to pick something other than Internet Explorer as their Web browser. And starting today, Microsoft’s given the whole world a chance to see what its "Web browser choice screen" looks like.
Here are a couple odd facts for you: compared to people everywhere else, folks in North America dislike Chrome. And individuals who live in Mexico, the U.S., and Canada are unusually big fans of Internet Explorer. That’s what new Quantcast data implies, anyway.
According to data released by the AT Internet Institute, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer has fallen to under 60% of visits in Europe. The firm suggests that with widely publicized news of a major security flaw and moves being made by competing browsers, IE’s fall may not be reversed in the very near future.
