Google Chrome More Popular than IE

by Yves Dagenais on May 24 2012

Google’s Chrome browser was the most popular browser used on Sunday March 18th, 2012.
That’s significant as Microsoft’s Internet Explorer has maintained a pretty strong hold on the lead in the browser war.

These stats are based on StatCounter by GlobalStats, a respected source for online user usage stats. Other services might have different stats but regardless, their stats are a really good indicator of what’s going on in the browser world.

Here’s a graph of March 18th, 2012 with Chrome in the lead by 0.21% with a total of 32.71% of the browser market share.
