In the battle for web browser supremacy there can only be one, and that one is apparently Google Chrome. Google Chrome has inched ahead of Internet Explorer (IE) last month taking a third of the global browser market share.
Statcounter’s data for July 2012 shows that Chrome has obtain a massive 33.81% of the market, while Internet Explorer and fire fox follow at 32.04% and 23.73% respectively. Apple’s Safari browser has 7.12% global market share, while the niche internet browser Opera has 1.72%.
According to StatCounter’s figures, Chrome first overtook Internet Explorer back in May, staying marginally ahead through June, before growing a convincing lead in July. Chrome has been growing steadily over the last year, starting at only 22.14% of global market share back July 2011 to its now industry leading 33.81%
