Is Google Chrome Gaining Ground?

May 22

With the advent of IE 8 being sent out across the globe I thought I’d take a look at how the browser wars are going.  I found out some interesting things.

Here’s the method to my madness.  I looked at the Google Analytic’s for two sites I designed and developed.  I looked at the percentages for each browser for the months of March, April and May and listed the top 10.

Here are a few of the findings.

  • IE market share has dropped a small amount overall.
  • IE 6 market share seems to have dropped in the US but grown in other areas of the world.
  • IE 7 is the dominant browser but has dropped a small amount in the US but a larger amount around the world.
  • IE 8 seems to be growing steadily in the US and even more around the world.
  • Firefox seems to be maintaining it’s share in the US and possibly grown a bit worldwide.
  • Chrome is gaining steadily in the US and at a much larger rate worldwide.
  • Opera is on the decline in the US but growing worldwide.
