Latest Browser Usage
Looking at data provided by StatCounter, it would seem there have some definitely changes in browser use over the past year. In the USA, Google Chrome recently took the crown as the most popular browser in the world. It's been my favorite for the past year as well. Internet Explorer now sits at the #2 spot, with Firefox a strong #3 and Safari a much lower #4.
Chrome Wins! Or Does It?
This data combines all versions of Chrome into 1, while keeping Internet Explorer 7,8, and 9 separate. Combining all versions of IE into one and it's still the most popular. Chrome users tend to update their browser versions reguarly, however, and most have no idea what version they are running, while IE users tend to be locked in to the browser version they are using (because of work restrictions or operating system requirements).
