Google Chrome Is The World’s Most Popular Browser

The latest version of Google Chrome browser just passed Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) to become the most popular desktop web browser in the world, according to statistics from StatCounter, a digital analytics company.
Chrome 15 now has 24.55% of the worldwide market, edging out IE8′s 22.16%. Mozilla Firefox 8.0 

Internet Explorer is the default browser on Windows machines, of course, which is why its market share is so dominant. IE8, released in 2008, was the last version of the browser to be compatible with PCs running Windows XP, the OS that preceded Windows Vista and Windows 7. Many older Windows machines still run XP, in turn fueling usage of IE8.
Although it’s at version 15, Chrome is a relatively new browser, first launched in 2008. In that time, though, it’s become very popular among the tech-savvy for its speed, spartan design and frequent, automatic updates. Those features have since been emulated by other browsers, including Internet Explorer.
