Google Chrome browser sees rise in market share

It’s good news for the browser boffins down at Google, who polish Chrome on a daily basis, with the release of Net Application’s stats for market share in November.

Chrome was up to 9.26% of the browser market, from 8.5% in October, an increase of almost 10% of its user base. Safari was also up slightly, from 5.36% to 5.55%.

The biggest loser was Internet Explorer, down again from 59.18% in October, to 58.44%. Microsoft’s browser has consistently been shedding half a percent chunks throughout the majority of months in 2010 (it’s down from 62.12% at the start of the year).

Firefox remained pretty much level, dropping 0.07%, although it’s down almost 2% on the year. Chrome has nearly doubled its user base since January 2010, when it began with a 5.22% share, and it clearly seems to be Google which most of these Firefox and IE users have migrated to.
