How the numbers make difference for IE10
Though at the first glance the numbers seem insignificant and increase in the market share seems very small. However, the numbers are very noteworthy because IE10 runs only on Windows 7 and Windows 8; while IE9 is available for Windows Vista as well. If you consider this, you will certainly understand the difference in numbers.
