And the Winner is…
According to StatCounter.com Google Chrome has a commanding lead over all other browsers and continues to add more users every month.
Google Chrome controls 41.38% of market share with Internet Explorer coming in at a distant second, having only 27.72% of users. Firefox is third with 19.76% and bringing up the rear is Safari 7.96% and Opera 1%.
The most striking indicator of this report is that Google Chrome is the only browser that continues to increase its number of active users. All other browsers are in decline.
I can’t say I predicted this trend when Chrome first came on the scene but I was definitely an early adopter. With the knowledge and experience of website users I’d attained through years of building and maintaining websites, I was confident that Google would eventually outpace competitors in the browser race. I’m happy to say that I was right. If you’re still resistant to making the switch to Google Chrome, I can only say “what are you waiting for?”. Don’t be an agent of stagnation. Be an ambassador of progress.
