After years of falling usage share, Microsoft's Internet Explorer has rebounded nicely in 2012, not by halting its declines but by reversing them. The trend continued yet again in April, with IE edging up to 54 percent usage share.

IE 9 on Windows 7 grew 4 percentage points in April to control 35.5 percent of that part of the market, compared with 21 percent for Chrome and 15.3 percent for Firefox.

In the United States, IE 9’s control of Windows 7-based web browsing is far more dominant. There, IE 9 controls 53 percent of browser usage, compared with also-rans Chrome (15 percent) and Firefox (12.5 percent).

IE9 is really good. The only benefit of using Firefox and Chrome are their extensions and apps.

IE9 regained its marketshare just because some clear improvements.

Nonetheless, I think the technical features of Chrome and Firefox deserve better ranking here.

I can tell you, Firefox lost one additional user this month. ;) Full time IE9 user, and secondary Chromium user, here!

Does anyone know how Netmarketshare monitors the browser usage?
