Surprise! Microsoft’s Internet Explorer is still the dominant web browser among enterprise users. After reviewing the latest browser usage statistics from the exo.repository, we found that over 80% of users at large IT organizations continue to use IE at least 4 hours a day, a result that contradicts the conventional wisdom that IE’s usage share is declining overall.

At the same time, the next most common browser, Firefox, is slowly creeping up on IE’s share, with nearly 50% of enterprise users now opting for the popular FOSS alternative. And though it’s a relative newcomer to the “browser wars,” Google’s Chrome is rapidly making inroads – our data shows that over 15% of users have at least tried one of the various Chrome beta or post-beta releases.
