Chrome is Now the Most-Used Browser

Click the graph to see the live result.

According to StatCounter, the web analytics service used by both this blog and the Accordion Guy blog, Chrome has just edged past Internet Explorer in usage share. This is quite a change from a year ago, when Internet Explorer still held first place at about 45% and Chrome was a distant third with about 20% by StatCounter’s measurements.

What will the graph look like a year from now?

Update: I’ve posted an article showing browser usage share stats by W3Counter and Clicky. I’ve also written an article about NetMarketShare’s stats, which say that IE has a very comfortable lead and is even trending slightly upward. You might also find this comic amusing.

It’s interesting that in North America, IE still reigns ~45%: http://gs.statcounter.com/#browser-na-weekly-201120-201220

(Closer to ~37%; I misread the graph)

It would be interesting to know the split between company versus public adoption. Any idea where to find this? It seems the landscape would look radically different.

Thought that firefox would be the one which increased the most with all their nice widgets. But that was obviously wrong google is taking over everything :)
