Chrome edges closer to rivals
What’s your personal choice of internet browser? The latest statistics show that Google’s Chrome browser is getting a big bump in usage at the weekends, which implies that while many companies may be forcing their employees to use more traditional browsers during work hours, Google is the top choice when they are free to choose their own software.
And if you look at StatCounter’s data, it coincides with a dip in use for Internet Explorer.
On March 18th, Chrome briefly became the top browser, with a surge in use in India, Russia and Brazil helping to bump it to the head of the pile, according to StatCounter. That’s the first time Google has overtaken its rivals anywhere.
It may only have been for a day, but StatCounter’s Aodhan Cullen says it is a milestone for Google, even if it’s still unclear if Chrome could be number one on a long-term basis.
So what’s your browser of choice? And why?
