IE falls behind Firefox, Chrome in browser survey


GigaOM reports that a new survey of the most used applications on Windows puts Firefox at the top, followed by Google's Chrome browser. Internet Explorer trailed at #3. And among the youngest users, IM did even worse.

The survey, by Wakoopa, includes the most used applications on Windows, Mac and the Web. It is based on the activity of 75,000 participating users. 

Firefox also came out on top among Mac users. On the Web, Facebook was #1, but Google  took four of the top 10 slots. Gmail was #2. The survey also shows that younger users prefer Firefox over IE by a larger margin.
