Google Chrome Now Has A Third Of The Browser Market Worldwide

Google Chrome lead in the browser market continues to grow.

Chrome accounted for 33.8% of the global browser market in July, an increase of more than 10 percentage points from the year before, according to the latest data from StatCounter. Internet Explorer, the second most popular browser, had 32% of the market.

Google’s browser first passed Internet Explorer for a full week back in May and then took the top spot for the entire month of June.

While Chrome’s share of the market has been increasing, Internet Explorer and Firefox have been on the decline. Apple’s Safari browser has remained relatively stagnant at about 7% market share.
