Google Chrome is still on top of the browser heap, has over 1/3 of market

Chrome captures 1/3 of the browser market, still on top of the heap

| Internet Browsers News | Posted: Aug 6, 2012 3:32 pm

It all started with a day. A while back, we reported how Chrome became the top browser in the world for a day. A little later, it managed to stay the top browser for a week. And then it managed a month. And now, it's still on top and is continually increasing its lead over the others. It currently has captured one-third of the market.

StatCounter has the market share of Chrome pegged at 33.8% for July 2012. This figure is up from June's 32.8% and up significantly from July 2011's figure of 22.1%. IE is still putting up quite the fight and still manages to have 32% of the market. Firefox, on the other hand, is losing ground and is down to 23.7%.

 

Safari has managed to hold steady at around 7.1%. Last month, Chrome managed to become the top browser in Europe and surpassed Firefox for the first time. Chrome has a massive lead in South Africa and Asia, where it is the top browser and has a massive lead. IE still leads the US, UK, and Australia, which is interesting.
