Google’s Chrome Browser Continues The Assault, Delivers Major Blows To Internet Explorer And Mozilla Firefox In 2011
The only question that is really left is “How long until Internet Explorer is dethroned as browser King?” It seems like the writing has been on the wall for some time now, and the recent data from StatCounter for 2011 paints the picture accurately – Google’s Chrome Browser is now taking aim at Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.
According to 2011 numbers from StatCounter, Chrome is now in second place with 27% of the total browser market share. This comes ahead of Mozilla’s Firefox, who holds 25%, and behind IE’s 39% market share. Additionally, as many have noted, Internet Explorer started the year at 46% and Firefox started the year over 30%, and the vast majority of their lost shares have gone to Chrome. Now of course, StatCounter is not the only source that shows the trend. Net Application has Chrome moving up 9%.
So what does this mean? Maybe, just maybe, we’ll have a new title holder in terms of browser share. And that’s with IE coming by default on all PC’s. Are you still using IE? Let us know!
