After seeing its U.S. Internet search market share increase slightly in June -- for the first time in 2008 -- Microsoft gave back some of the gains in July, according to figures from market research comScore.
Microsoft had 8.9 percent of the market in July, down from 9.2 percent in June, according to comScore.
Here's how the other competitors did:
Google: June: 61.5 percent; July: 61.9 percent.
Yahoo: June: 20.9 percent; July: 20.5 percent.
Ask Network: June: 4.3 percent; July: 4.5 percent.
AOL LLC: June: 4.1 percent; July: 4.2 percent.
It's not surprising to see Google's market share continue to rise considering how well the company's search product is scoring in customer satisfaction.
