Google Chrome browser beat Firefox

In this news you will get the information about the Google chrome and Mozila Firefox browser.

Google’s Chrome browser appears to be soaring up the charts, taking over Firefox in StatCounter’s latest global survey. Google introduced Chrome in 2008 as it continued to expand its offerings beyond its core search business.

In October, Google CEO Larry Page announced that Chrome had 200 million active users, excellent growth considering the company announced 70 million active users at its 2010 I/O conference. The browser appears to have continued that torrid pace. Google Incorporation's Chrome internet browser overtook Firefox for the first time globally in November and it continues to narrow the gap to market leader Microsoft Corporation's Internet Explorer.


Chrome took 25.69% of the worldwide market, up from 4.66% in November 2009. Firefox trailed at 25.23%. Internet Explorer maintained its top spot, holding 40.63% of the global browser market. Chrome overtook Firefox in the U.K. as early as July.

According to the survey, which measures Web usage as opposed to downloads, Chrome has 25.69 percent of the market; IE has 40.53 percent. Chrome also remained the number-two browser in Britain, a spot that StatCounter said it nabbed in July.

In the U.S., however, Firefox is still holding on to the second spot, with around 20 percent versus Chrome’s 17 percent. But Firefox has lost some of its market share as Chrome gains.

The results could also foreshadow a battle between Microsoft and Google against each other for the top spot, though Chrome admittedly has got quite a bit of catching up to do.
