Chrome has ten per cent of the market

Written by Nick Farell

All at Microsoft's expense
Google's Chrome browser has had rather a good year. According to bean counters at Net Applications the fledgling browser has 10 per cent of the market having made gains at the expense of Redmond's Internet Exploder.

The figures do have some good news for Microsoft. It seems that IE9, which embodies Microsoft's dream to build a cutting-edge browser, is showing signs of real adoption with usage that grew from 0.4 percent in November to 0.5 percent in December.

For months now, Chrome has been on the rise. It jumped from 9.3 percent in November statistics to 10 percent in December. Mozilla's Firefox, the second-place browser, stayed flat at about 22.8 percent, Apple's Safari rose from 5.6 percent to 5.9 percent, and Opera was flat at about 2.2 percent.

Chrome and Safari grew at the expense of IE, which dropped from 58.4 percent to 57.1 percent.

Internet explorer sucks but I still use it even if I also have Chrome installed. :D

a good percentage of these are in business and schools, my college just uses IE7 as a default and compared to chrome it's rather buggy and less productive, they can't be bothered upgrading to IE8, although Chrome manages to install fine due to the unique installer even though the network administrators don't allow software installation of any kind, so I quickly install it on the machine I'm using then i'm on easy street :-)

I suspect that some of the IE users are moving to Firefox and some of the Firefox users are moving to Chrome.

Certainly for all of us who originally switched to Firefox a few years ago because IE was so slow, Firefox is now equally slow.

These percentages all seem quite small anyway. Must be a slow news day.

One day Chrome is going to be like IE if too many people decide to use it.

Psh... use Safari, it suppose to be a safer browser.

And just because it has "Google" in its name. Opera was, is and will be for the next months the best browser out today.

But people never bother to look beyond the length of their own nose.
