Chrome Continues To Gain Ground

With the turn of the month the latest statistics from Net Market Share show that Chrome usage increased during September both on mobile devices and on the desktop.

On the desktop Chrome put on 1.58% in September taking its share to 21.19%, taking share mainly from Firefox which declined by 1.05% to 14.18%. 



The past six months have also seen Chrome making a surge in the mobile space at the expense of both Android and Safari. It currently has 21.48% putting it ahead of Android, which now has 20.70%, for the first time.



When you look at the combined desktop and mobile figures, Chrome now has a total share of 18%, putting it firmly in second place, but Internet Explorer still appears to be the world's dominant browser with 49%.



As we have previously noted IE's dominance comes from somewhere other than I Programmer's audience as indicated in this comparison:



On I Programmer Internet Explorer is in third place accounting for 8.54% of browser usage. Firefox is in second place at 24.16% and Chrome is a clear leader with 55.62%. In fact Chrome usage has declined a little since we last looked while Firefox has increased its share a little. Even so, Chrome seems to have a very healthy slice of the browser pie.
