While Bing hit 4.37 percent and Yahoo dropped to 3.93 percent, Google still dominates worldwide with 89.94 percent of the search engine market share, the web analytics company reported. Google dipped below 90 percent globally for the first time since August 2009.

In the U.S., Yahoo is clinging to its lead on Bing (9.74 vs. 9.03 percent), well behind Google's 79.63 percent.

Bing powers Yahoo search in the U.S. Canada, Australia, Brazil and Mexico.

StatCounter's stats are based on data collected from more than 15 billion page views per month and more than 3 million websites.
