Chrome squeezes by Internet Explorer
Internet Explorer has been in decline for a long time now. Once upon a time, it was by far large the most commonly used browser on the Internet. When Microsoft had to begin offering alternative web browsers with Windows, the tide started to turn. Recently Google Chrome overtook Internet Explorer for the most widely used browser in the world.
As it stands right now, both IE and Chrome have roughly 33% of the global browser market. If Chrome can maintain its slight lead, this will be the first time it has beat Microsoft for a full month. Most expect Internet Explorer to continue a decline with stiff competition from Chrome and Firefox.
