By Staff Writer Published  October 4, 2010

Microsoft continues to lose share in the web browser market, despite the beta launch of Internet Explorer 9 last month.

According to figures from web marketing and analytics company Net Applications, Internet Explorer accounted for 59.65% of web browsers in September, down from 60.4% in August and 60.74% in July.

The loss in market share was to the benefit of the other major browsers, which all saw small increases in share in September, with Mozilla up 0.03% to 22.96%, Google Chrome up 0.46% to 7.98%, Apple Safari up 0.11% to 5.27% and Opera up 0.02% to 2.39%.

For Microsoft, use of Internet Explorer 8 and 9 grew during the month, while usage of IE 6 and 7 declined.
