Mozilla Firefox has—barely—dipped below 20 percent market share for the second time in six months, after an October that saw Microsoft Internet Explorer grow, Google Chrome fall, and mobile browsing account for 10 percent of all Web traffic for the first time ever.

Internet Explorer was up half a point to 54.13 percent share, its highest level since September 2011. Chrome was down 0.31 points to 18.55 percent, hitting a one year low after its third consecutive month of losses. Firefox fell 0.09 points to 19.99 percent. Safari was down 0.05 points to 5.21 percent, Opera was essentially unchanged, up 0.01 points to 1.63 percent.
