Chrome Slows Down as IE9 and Firefox 10 Surges

According to the statistics provided by the well-reputed NetMarketShare, Chrome continues to lost global market share for the second consecutive month. However, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9 showed some positive trend, but Internet Explorer creeps down as a whole. Mozilla’s web browser Firefox version 10 also gained some points.

If we look at the data closely, we can find out that it gives us larger trends in computing usage and consumer habits. A lot of things are going on in the browser market. Firefox came out well with its new strong version, which has been warmly welcomed by the masses. Internet Explorer 9, on the other hand, is preying upon the market share of other versions of IE. Last but not the least, Google’s Chrome that had done well in the recent few months has started to lose some of its share because of its (perhaps) fast versioning that leave it progressively incoherent. In short, we can say that IE and Firefox are growing in quality, while Chrome is creeping down.

Like Google Chrome, Microsoft is also not sure about the future of its Internet Explorer. In one of its blog post, the Redmond-based software giant expressed their contentment saying, “In line with recent months, we’re pleased to report that IE9 growth on Windows 7 continues, passing 30% worldwide as of the end of February.  The data is particularly encouraging for users and developers in the US where IE9 is over 40% usage share at the end February.”

Internet Explorer 10 does have the potential to push IE market share, given the fact that how the browser is integrated (with its second user interface) into Windows 8. We are looking forward to get more updates on this idea. We will get back to you should we have any further reports.
