And Internet Explorer is slowly falling below 50%.
Fascinating how the worm… er, the market has turned this year.

The annual pwn2own (I pronounce it “pone to own”) contest just wrapped, with interesting results. DVLabs reports:
The contest uncovered 4 new and unique critical vulnerabilities affecting the latest and greatest versions of IE, Safari and FireFox. The Chrome browser gets a small nod for being impacted by one of the flaws, although exploit is not possible using any current known techniques.
You’ve probably seen the headlines about Internet Explorer 8 – the version that just came out – getting hacked, and how Microsoft swears it has a patch, less than 12 hours after the original “pwn” but just hasn’t delivered it yet.
Interestingly, none of the mobile operating systems – Blackberry, Android, iPhone, Nokia/Symbian, or Windows Mobile – got hacked. I betcha bucks to buckaroos that’ll change next year.
