[Browser Wars] Every 1 in 3 Browser is a Chrome

The battle of the browsers is getting less fascinating in recent times and that is because Chrome seems to be simply unstoppable. Google Chrome overtook Internet Explorer to become the most used browser a couple of months ago, pushing out Internet Explorer to second place for the first time ever.  Lately even Microsoft has accepted that Internet Explorer was pretty much the browser everone loved to hate.

According to StatCounter, Chrome now has breached the important 33.33% mark.

It means that now very 1 in 3 internet user is using Chrome. The rise of Chrome is even more incredible when you consider it did not have a captive platform to grow on, unlike Safari and Internet Explorer. Maybe, if Windows 8 is a super-hit, then Internet Explorer might actually start making a turn around and arrest the slide in its numbers.

Chrome might be late into the game as a mobile phone browser, but it has started catching up with being available for Android and iOS users.

Are you a Chrome user? Do you think its rise could be challenged or stopped? Do drop in your comments.
