Chrome headed to be #1 Browser

Business Insider recently reported that Chrome is now the number 1, or near number one browser of choice, and its popularity has come as the expense of IE as shown in the chart below

The data set is based on statistics collected by StatCounter, and is probably not reliable for specific figures but sufficiently reliable for showing trends – in this case, that Chrome is stealing market share mainly from IE and somewhat from Firefox. In any case, a significant amount of internet traffic is now being funneled through the Chrome security model. The previous browser prediction that I posted on, that Firefox would overtake IE by Christmas 2012, agrees quite well with the data set above.
