While studying the browser stats that I happen to have available, it seemed 
to me that Explorer has lost a bit of market share in 2003. I wondered if 
anyone had seen the same trend, or the reverse.

In an interview in the Singapore Straits Times (now unfortunately offline), 
browser expert Charles Upsdell was quoted saying he thought Explorer had 
lost about 5% of the market. I myself am more cautious and conservative, and 
would settle for 1 to 2%.

The matter goes beyond a simple browser market share adjustment, since this 
would be the first year ever that Explorer loses market share instead of 
gaining it. Therefore I'd like to have second, third and fourth opinions 
before Officially Proclaiming that Explorer is losing ground.

Comments anyone?
