Chrome has become the preferred Internet browser in the Philippine market.
Research presented by StatCounter for August 2011 indicates Chrome ended August with a market share of 51.7 percent, up from 50.11 percent a month earlier. Firefox continued it’s downward slide to 34.66 percent from 36.35 percent in July. Microsoft’s Internet Explorer only attracted 10 percent of Filipino Internet users, largely due to perceived poor security features.
Only a year ago, Chrome’s share was 24 percent to Firefox’s comfortable lead of 53.02 percent. When Chromebooks are launched in the Philippines, one can only expect Chrome to continue it’s market domination.
