Due to a settlement by the European Commission, Microsoft is legally required to alert those who have Internet Explorer as their default browser that there are other browser options on the market. The browser choice feature will give an overview of a variety of browsers which are available for the user to download, what their features are and installation options should they wish to try something new when surfing the internet.
Statistics show that a significant proportion of people accessing online florists eFlorist are essentially abandoning Internet Explorer for other internet browsers. From April 1 - April 14, accesses through Firefox saw an increase of 25% from the same period between January 1 - January 14. During the January period, 13.92% of users visited eFlorist through Firefox. The April figures show an increase to 17.20% - in fact, all browsers see an increase, with Internet Explorer falling dramatically in the space of three months.
"In January, before browser choice appeared, over three quarters of visitors to our online flower shop (76.35%) came to us through Internet Explorer. Since the installation, that figure has fallen quite dramatically (69.62%), especially when taking the short time period into consideration,"
