Chrome taking a piece of IE


by David Allen

Going on the figures of all browser users, the new addition by Google is being used by a mere 0.7 per cent of internet users, yet at the same time Microsoft’s Internet Explorer lost 1.4 per cent of its users - could this be a sign of the times?

Although IE is still the main browser being used, with a market share of 71 per cent, there are others out there like Mozilla’s FireFox, Apple’s Safari and Opera. Their market share remained constant.

It looks like the entire Chrome user base has come from former users of Internet Explorer.

This is despite Chrome being in beta and the fact there have been some security issues too.

Within a few days of the release of Chrome, Google had to issue a patch to cover these security issues and smooth out a few bugs.
