Google Chrome Surpasses Mozilla Firefox in Market Shares For The First Time
More Users Now Use Google Chrome than Mozilla Firefox
Google Chrome is now trailing behind Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, which is still the world’s most used browser. For the past few years, Chrome, has maintained its number three spot, when it comes to browser usage compared to Firefox that has steadily maintained its second spot, well, except for this month.
This is based on Statcounter’s graph that shows the latest movements in browser usage, from November 2009 to November 2011, with Chrome and Firefox criss-crossing for the first time. Google’s browser had 25.69 percent increase in global market share for November, while Firefox just took home 25.23 percent, a pretty close fight.
According the blog post of StatCounter CEO Aodhan Cullen, his company does not only measure browser downloads, but also its actual usage to access the internet.
Compared to its competitors, Firefox and Internet Explorer, the Chrome browser was launched at a later time (2008), when the two giants have already marked their names in the web.
Chrome is known and praised for its comparative speed and vast extension shop. It also has fought a scandal when it did not sign a “Do Not Track” pledge. Since then, they have continuously launched updates and have gained more users in the process.View Article Source »
