The next instalment on which browsers you should be supporting in May 2013 shows big gains for 1 browser.
The main change this month over previous browser share updates is that IE10 now appears in your Windows update as an important update (certainly for the Windows 7 operating system). This means that many users are automatically upgrading to IE10 and moving away from IE9.
If you are not yet testing in IE10 then, as you will see below, the market share for this browser just went up several percent.
