Google still leads the pack from a comfortable 65% (this is almost a monopoly on search), Yahoo is down 4% above the previous month. It would be useful to compare the Bing market share (taken by the number of searches) with Bing market share taken by the number of searchers. That would allow to draw some interesting conclusions.
