The Next Web is covering the massive rise of Google’s web browser, Chrome:
Remember when Google’s Chrome browser overtook Internet Explorer as the world’s most popular browser for a week back in May? And next, for a full calendar month?
Now, it’s on top and looking to stay…
For July 2012, StatCounter pegged Chrome’s global market share at 33.8 percent, up from 32.8 percent in June and from 22.1 percent in July 2011.
That’s a pretty meteoric rise in one year, or a precipitous drop by the others. Rankings by market share:
- Chrome – 33.8%
- Internet Explorer – 32%
- Firefox – 23.7%
- Safari – 7.1%
