It may only have been briefly over a weekend, but at one point on Sunday, Google’s browser Chrome was the most used browser on the internet, according to the data supplied by StatCounter. This is the first time that the Chrome browser has taken first place from Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.
However, before everyone gets all excited there appears to be a reason for this, the weekend! It seems that because most business users have IE and they are not working at the weekend, this is Google chance to slip into first place now and then!
According to Aodhan Cullen, who is StatCounter’s chief executive, he said;
“While it is only one day, this is a milestone,”
And he finished off by saying;
“At weekends, when people are free to choose what browser to use, many of them are selecting Chrome in preference to IE.”
