Chrome overtakes IE to become most popular browser
According to the study, Google now commands a 31.8 per cent market in the US, up 6 per cent year-on-year. Internet Explorer is down 6 per cent to 30.9 per cent while, Apple’s Safari is the third most popular browser with a 25 per cent share.
Mozilla’s Firefox browser is now at just 8.7 per cent, after falling from a near 20 per cent share over the past two years. ADI attributed the decline to its lack of mobile presence.
@J_Rad, being bundled with Flash gives Chrome an unfair advantage over IE, which is bundled with Windows, or Safari which is bundled with MacOS (including iOS)?
chrome gets bundled and defaulted as the main browserI saw this mentioned yesterday by a few different members here and found it kind of strange. I went and looked it up and found out why and added that background info here: [webmasterworld.com...]
That may be a myth because I have always encountered a lack of it.
As a developer supporting plugins on all browsers
Basing your view of a browser on how it handles plugins just seems short sighted to me.
@J_RaD, IE does still come pre-installed with Windows, whereas Chrome is installed on Windows by some OEMs, so IE is definitely far more widely pre-installed with Windows than Chrome is.
