Chrome Becomes World's most popular Browser

On March 18, Chrome just edged past Internet Explorer before Microsoft’s browser quickly regained its lead. What’s interesting is that Chrome’s ascendance was down to its popularity in India, Russia and Brazil, where it topped the polls, according to the analysts.

That is in contrast to markets like the U.S., China and Germany, where StatCounter says Google’s browser is regularly in second or third place, with Firefox and IE taking the top slot.

Two other notable trends emerge out of StatCounter’s data.

– Chrome’s rise is almost totally at the expense of Internet Explorer: as you can see in the graphic below, usage of these two is almost the mirror opposite, while the other big players — Firefox, Safari and Opera — have relatively consistent usage.

– Chrome seems to be getting used more on weekends. That likely points to the fact that in office environments, IE continues to rule the roost, while when consumers are at home, they go for Google.
