Chrome overtakes Explorer

Following my post in May suggesting that Chrome was about to become the most popular browser, this has now happened. According to W3Counter, Chrome now has a 28.3% share as against 27.6% for Explorer, with Firefox a further 5% behind.

Since July 2012, the iOS Safari browser (iPhone/iPad/iPhone touch) has been included in Safari’s usage share and explains a surge from 6.5% in June to 14.4% in August.

What this all demonstrates and is no great surprise, is that people are browsing on more varied browsers and platforms than ever before.
