Answer:

The given pie charts present information about the share of various Internet browsers in the web search market in years 2001 and 2010. (Introductory sentence)

(We can clearly structure the answer into years. Write one paragraph on 2001 only and another on changes that took place by 2010.)

In 2001, the Internet Explorer dominated the market with 73.6 percent share. The distant second runner was the Firefox with just 22.3 percent stake. Opera’s share was only 2.1 percent while that of Chrome was 1 percent. Safari and others were insignificant. (2001 only)

The scenario changed drastically during the next decade. Internet Explorer was no longer the biggest player. With about 38 percent stake, Firefox had the largest market share. It was closely followed by the Internet Explorer. Chrome was the biggest gainer since it increased its market share fifteen times from just 1 percent in 2001 to 15.5 percent in 2010. Opera and Safari also gained market share, and they stood at 4.2 and 4.9 percent respectively. (Changes in 2010)

In nutshell, the Internet Explorer was the only browser that lost market share during this decade and every other browser gained.
