Chrome Wins Battle of the Browsers… For a Day

Internet Explorer had a day off from being the top browser in the world on Sunday March 18th, 2012.

Chrome managed to handle that duty quite well, however, noted Aodhan Cullen CEO of StatCounter, an analytics firm.

“While it is only one day, this is a milestone,” said Cullen, in reference to Chrome’s 32.7 percent usage versus Internet Explorer’s 32.5 percent share.

He added: “Whether Chrome can take the lead in the browser wars in the long term remains to be seen, however the trend towards Chrome usage at weekends is undeniable. At weekends, when people are free to choose what browser to use, many of them are selecting Chrome in preference to IE.”

Internet Explorer went back to role of leader when work and Internet usage across corporate networks resumed on Monday April 19th to the tune of 35 percent usage, while Chrome’s share declined to 30 percent.
