We're starting an updated monthly series to make it easy to highlight which web browsers your website should be supporting.
Note - the most up to date browser market share reports are here - browser statistics
The web browser world changes frequently with new releases and updated versions so don't wait until you get caught out to check your website in those browsers.
What we can start to see for December is that the newly released IE10 browser is beginning to gain ground. Firefox 17 will start to replace version 16 as the predominant Firefox version and, thankfully, IE7 is going to drop below 1%.
This means it will become an easier option as to whether you support IE7 and this decision will most likely rest on your target market and/or your client or management.
Worldwide, Chrome and Firefox have higher market shares whereas IE9 is not quite so popular. More people are hanging onto IE8 but we are losing IE7, as it has already dropped below 1%. Firefox 17 is starting to become adopted and this is increasing in December.
The next instalment will be in early January and then we'll release a similar update in the first week of every month covering the previous months browser statistics.
All the above statistics are from StatCounter Global Stats.
