A new study by Positive Support Review says Microsoft Internet Explorer has overtaken Netscape Navigator/Communicator as the most used Web browser during the last months of 1997.
In the week ended 3 January, Internet Explorer (versions 2, 3 and 4) was being used in 63.3 per cent of all Internet sessions, the study claims, with Netscape's browsers falling back to only 35.6 per cent.
The data in the study covers the period from 9 September 1997 to 3 January 1998. During that period, Internet Explorer usage grew from 42.1 per cent to 63.3 per cent, PSR maintains.
Other recent studies, such as one by Dataquest in November, have indicated that Microsoft is gaining on Netscape, but have always shown Netscape maintaining about 60 per cent market share.
