The lastest web browser market share results have been announced for August 2012.It’s been a while since the Search Clinic last looked at the web browser share statistics- 2010 to be precise, when the Internet Explorer browser fell below 50 per cent market share.
Then the usage breakdown was Internet Explorer had a 49.87 per cent share of the global browser market, with Mozilla’s Firefox on 31.5 per cent market share, while Google’s Chrome browser accounted for only 11.54 per cent of the market.
The figures were researched by StatCounter.
The latest figures below have again been compiled by StatCounter and are based on analysis from 3 million websites.
The statistics for web browser market share in August 2012 show that now Chrome is top of the tree with a total web browser market share of 33.58%.
Internet Explorer now has a total share of 32.81%.
With the Firefox web browser now having a share of 22.86%.
Two other thoughts are that in 2010 the three browsers had a total share of 92.91- last month that dominance had only dropped to 89.25% and that despite Apple’s recent growth thier Safari browser is still a great distance away from disturbing that dominance.
