Internet Explorer dominates browser market

— 12:43 PM on July 29, 2003

Internet Explorer has raked in a 95.4% share of the browser market, 66.3% of which is the latest IE 6.0. Apparently, the next major Internet Explorer release won't come until 2005 when Microsoft releases Longhorn, which is disappointing since IE still lacks a number of useful features. Pop-up blocking will reportedly make it into MSN 9.0, but that won't be free, leaving IE behind the feature curve.

Would it kill Microsoft to release a pop-up blocker and tabbed browsing for Internet Explorer? No, but with an overwhelming share of the browser market in Microsoft's hands already, the "innovate or die" mantra really doesn't apply.
