I am not in the least surprised of the progress of Chrome to grab market share.
The fragmentation of Windows OS and browser-specific versions must be a negative for IE. That, coupled with the regular reminders on Google properties to take Chrome must be giving it a boost.
Report: Google's Chrome Browser Now At Over 33 pct [thenextweb.com]
Well, Chrome is still on top, judging by the latest figures from traffic measurement service provider StatCounter, and it has now even taken more than one third of the browser market worldwide (see graphs below and at the bottom).
For July 2012, StatCounter pegged Chrome’s global market share at 33.8 percent, up from 32.8 percent in June and from 22.1 percent in July 2011.
