Wikipedia Definition:
The term "browser wars" refers to the competition for dominance in the web browser marketplace. The term is used to denote two specific periods of time: the competition between market-dominating Netscape Navigator and its eventual defeat by Microsoft Internet Explorer during the late 1990s, and the competition from 2003 onwards between the dominating Internet Explorer and several other emerging browsers including Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Opera and, since mid-2008, Google Chrome.

This report is not showing market share trend. Either the back end software is broken or the label is wrong.

This graph shows market penetration over time. A graph that showed trend would have the percentage increase or decrease for any browser compared to the previous period.
