The long held first position by Microsoft was just scooped away by Google Chrome. Web tracker Net Market Share says Chrome is officially the No. 1 web browser.
Google Chrome’s recent report says the browser acquired 41.6 percent share in the month of April. During March, chrome had 39 percent share. The boosted results bared bad news for Internet Explorer as its share went down to 41.3 percent from 43.4 percent. Google Chrome has made a record by defeating IE for the first time in history, to acquire the top position.
The growth of Google Chrome is remarkable as its downloadable software, which requires users to manual install it. Whereas, Microsoft releases Internet Explorer as a default browser along with Windows except for the recent 10 series. This shows the importance of a browsers performance as users are ready to go out of their comfort zone to install a better browser according to their needs.
While Chrome and Internet Explorer rival in the Net Market Share, Firefox’s Mozilla browser is unfortunately going down the drain with a market share of 9.7 according to last month report, which dropped from 10.5 percent prior month. Since March of 2014 Firefox has remained in the third spot.
Web Tracker StatCounter believes Google Chrome has stood in the first spot from 2012, Settling Firefox for the second and IE at third. It is important that we know the Web trackers use their own process at determining Web traffic data.
