IE11 Finally Passes IE8 to Become the Most Popular Browser

IE8 had a pretty good long run, but in the end IE11 finally caught up with the aging browser, but only by attrition. IE 11 has been slowly growing in use, but it took shutting down support for XP to finally give IE11 the edge.

IE11 has mainly been stealing market share from IE10 and IE9 because Windows XP users can’t upgrade past IE8. With XP finally losing significant share, and Windows 8.x gaining share, the pieces were in place for IE11 to finally dethrone IE8.
