Google Chrome is much faster and a clean browser than Internet Explorer and that’s why web users are preferring it over other browsers. Popularity of Google Chrome is visible in the recent market share of the browsers where you can see each month jump in the reach of Chrome and dip in IE. Even the release of IE 8 didn’t make much difference. Here is the market share graphs showing popular browser’s percentage market share in this industry.
Comparison of Browser’s Market Share March – April 2010
This reports clearly shows that IE is loosing the market share gradually. Firefox jumped by 0.07 percent from last month and Google Chrome jumped by 0.6 percent which is a good amount. Either Microsoft will have to come up with some solid plan or they should be prepared to see the market share gradually going down the 50 percent value. After the release of Firefox 3.6, the market share of Firefox is also in positive direction which means Firefox and Chrome are eating up the IE market.
Look at the performance comparison chart that we had posted few weeks ago. In this chart as well, Google Chrome leads over other browsers.
My personal experience with Chrome is awesome and that’s why the default browser on my Windows 7 system is Chrome only. I use Firefox for some development and analysis purposes but thanks Google for extensions support in Chrome which made this browser more useful. Share your thoughts about this browser war and your default browser.
