Chrome is the Most Used Browser in the World, Says StatCounter

The site browsers metrics StatCounter released at the end of last week more statistics about the browser wars. And for the first time in this vital industry, Chrome has become the most used browser worldwide for more than two weeks in a row. The change, which takes Internet Explorer from the throne where sovereign reigned, happened in the first two weeks of May and while the difference is only two digits after the decimal point.
The first time this happened was in March, when the Chrome surpassed Internet Explorer for a weekend, but did not remain there after that. In the end, Chrome accounted for 31.88% share against 31.47% of Internet Explorer. Firefox also took advantage of the change and now accounts for 26.42% stake (compared with 25.48% in the first week of the month). The Safari and Opera follow the usher with respectively 7.37% and 1.71% share.
One of the reasons that led to the dance of the first browsers chairs was Chrome’s growth in the Asia and South America. This was to be expected, since the StatCounter accuses the browser Google is already the most used by most Brazilian web users since the end of last year, perhaps even by the great advertising that Google does in Orkut. And if you remember that social network also has many members in India will understand the reason Chrome have 8% more share than Internet Explorer there as well.
The metrics of StatCounter, however, do not match those of other companies, possibly because of different method. The most notorious example is the Net Applications, where Internet Explorer still dominates with a huge margin the share of the market for that month. But you can see the company’s graphics that known Microsoft’s browser has also been losing users for some time, but has not been exceeded yet.
A point against the StatCounter data was the fact that by the end of April the company accounted for the pre-rendering pages from Chrome as an access, which changed in early May. Still, the browser continued its ascent and reached the top. And you should be in that position for a long time.
