In what has become a familiar pattern, Google's Chrome Web browser gained more market share through September and now sits at 7.98 percent, according to Net Applications' new data.
This time, Chrome took share from Microsoft's Internet Explorer, which had risen back above 60 percent.
IE closed out September at 59.65 percent market share, down from 60.4 percent through August, the researcher said. It will be important to watch how IE's share fairs since the launch of IE 9 in September.
Firefox gained a bit to 29.96 percent, up from 29.93 percent in last month's figures. Apple's Safari rose to 5.27 percent from 5.16 percent the prior month.
