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.
