Google Chrome to overtake Firefox by the end of 2011

Chrome to overtake Firefox by end of the year as the second most popular browser

| Internet Browsers News | Posted: Oct 3, 2011 2:00 am

Chrome is very popular, and this popularity is winning them some serious users, with Firefox set to lose its title as the second most popular browser globally to Google, as soon as the end of this year. Microsoft's Internet Explorer is still way, way ahead of everything else right now with stats from September 2011 showing that Internet Explorer holds 41.7 percent market share, Firefox holding onto 26.8 percent and Chrome slightly behind at 23.6 percent.

If we view the data over the last year, we see just how quick Chrome is jumping on Firefox's heels and also how many users are leaving Internet Explorer. In October 2010, Chrome had just 12.4 market share, Firefox sitting on 31.2 percent and Internet Explorer had almost half, at 49.2 percent. IE has lost 7.5 percent in a single year, where Chrome added 11.2 percent. If this trend continues, Chrome should be on top of Firefox before the end of the year.
