While Google may have turned 14 today, its hugely popular browser, Google Chrome, has just turned four. In its first four years Chrome has risen to number one spot, edging a narrow lead over the once dominant Internet Explorer.
Google Chrome is well on track to becoming the world's most popular web browser as it eclipsed Mozilla Firefox's global market share during the month of November for the first time. Globally, Chrome is now the second most-used browser behind Internet Explorer as it maintains a strong lead, according to StatCounter aggregated data from more than three million websites.
Looking at statistical web browsing data from StatCounter GlobalStats, a phenomenon quickly becomes evident where users migrate from Internet Explorer in their droves at weekends, and resume the familiarity of browsers like Firefox and Chrome that they’ve become accustomed to.
