In a PC World article, Google has increased its market share, up to 63% from 61.9%. Yahoo and Microsoft both experienced drops from July.
The article states that "[t]he slipping market share of Yahoo and Microsoft doesn't speak well for their efforts to invigorate their online services and brands."
So is all hope lost? Not necessarily. One forum member writes that it's likely to see additional decreases in market share until Yahoo or Microsoft "make some major improvements to their sites or their search results." He suggests that they "make some new partnerships or buy out other companies as MSN has started doing."
Some also feel that Google's foray into the browser market may have contributed to the figures from last month.
