Google rises in market share, MSN falls badly and Yahoo just hovers in place. There was a thread this morning on WMW about the April 2007 stats numbers just released by Nielsen/NetRatings. According to them:

Microsoft saw its share of the market slip to 9 percent, down from 10.1 percent a month earlier. Google, meanwhile, increased its lead, accounting for 55.2 percent of Web searches, up from 53.7 percent in March. Yahoo grew its share to 21.9 percent, up narrowly from the 21.8 percent share it held in March.
On Ask and AOL:
AOL remained in fourth place for April, but saw its share slip to 5.4 percent from 5.8 percent in March, while held steady in fifth place with 1.8 percent of search queries.
