Google Chrome vs Firefox - who will be the top web browser?
Google's browser has seen a 5% during the last 2 years, now holding 25.69% of the market, whilst Firefox has 25.23%. Both browsers are trailing behind Internet Explorer, which still has over 40% of the market.
The research, conducted by website analytics company StatCounter, looked at browser usage rather than downloads, which Chrome is also highly active in.
Aodhan Cullen, CEO of StatCounter, said: “We can look forward to a fascinating battle between Microsoft and Google as the pace of growth of Chrome suggests that it will become a real rival to Internet Explorer globally.”
In July this year, UK-based users are reaching out to Google Chrome, with 24.82% of the market. The figure is just 4% more than its Firefox rival. However, the research found that US users prefer Firefox to Chrome, with only 3% difference.
