Google Chrome continues to be the top browser in the world, distancing itself even further from Microsoft's Internet Explorer. But it's Firefox that had the best month – it only managed to lose a very small percentage of its market share. It's still safely in third place though.
The latest StatCounter data
shows that Chrome is reaching new heights, conquering 34.77 percent of the global browser market. That's up from 34.21 percent; not a huge uptake, but still notable.
Comparatively, IE went from 32.7 percent in September
to just 32.08 percent last month. It remains to be seen whether IE10 can change that, but given how reluctant people are to switch to Windows 8, it probably won't happen any time soon.
Firefox, meanwhile, has managed to stop the decline, finally, though it's too early to call it a trend. Firefox ended October with 22.32 percent of the browser market, down from 22.4 percent, a statistically meaningless change.
