IE Browsers Drop Below 70% Market Share

The Dallas Morning News reported Internet Explorer - Microsoft's pervasive web browser - has fallen to 68% market share.

Firefox is now over 20% and browsers such as Safari, Opera, and Google's Chrome make up the rest.

The article shows Chrome at below 1% though I have seen reports that have that number as high as 2%.
