Google Chrome Is Now the Most Popular Web Browser

Microsoft’s Internet Explorer has long been the most used browser on the internet. But its iron grip began slipping ever since Google launched Chrome in 2008. In 2012, one usage tracker declared Chrome the new champion, but some others still had IE in the lead. Now, all the holdouts are in agreement—Chrome is king.

Google Chrome Is Now the Most Popular Web Browser

This past march, Computerworld released a detailed report which concluded that by May 2016, Chrome would be the undisputed champion, and Chrome hit the mark, NetMarketShare, the stat counter that Microsoft has long referenced as the most accurate source for measuring which browser reigns supreme, now says Chrome is the undisputed winner. It controls 41.66 per cent of the market whereas Internet Explorer and Microsoft’s new Edge browser collectively have 41.35 per cent. Chrome is unlikely to cede the position as Google plans to introduce a new Chrome design, made to be even more touch-friendly.

Chrome is number one. Let it ring throughout the land.
