Chrome Edging Out Firefox In Browser Wars

According to StatCounter, Google’s Chrome browser overtook Mozilla’s Firefox for the first time last month; in November, Chrome snagged 25.69% of the global Web browser market share, while Firefox managed 25.23%.

To put the rise of Chrome in perspective, two years ago it held a meager 4.66% of the market to Firefox’s 32.21%. It’s been steadily on the rise ever since.

It’s important to note, however, that although Chrome has certainly pilfered users from Firefox, Firefox has only lost 6.98% of its market share over the past two years. The bulk of Chrome’s user base is bleeding directly from Internet Explorer. IE is still far and away the browser leader with 40.63% market share, but it has lost considerable ground from two Novembers past, when it held 56.57%.

Other browsers are maintaining a small amount of market share. Safari has 5.92% of the market, and Opera has 1.82%.

Yes gazd1! I have to agree with you once again. You're so right though about the assortment of browsers that Mozilla has. People should go to their site and check them out.

I see! rapid1, I think that Sarah likes to be different from you. Some people are just like that you know. They have to be different so they can think that they are individual & separate from others. In some people this is actually their way of doing things all the time & that is to be the opposite from you or other people.

I wish chrome will not make google into too much of a monopoly. I just hate these monopolies.

Well "rapid1" on this pc, my only online pc, I use both Firefox and Internet Explorer 9. I tend to use both equally so as I can see how things sum up.

I think i won't even move away from FF unless they decide to give up and something better comes out. FF has all the traditional feel where chrome is too simple for me, ie is just -.-
