Browser wars

I have written before about Browser wars on this blog: you can read it here. About a year ago, it became clear that Chrome is taking over the world as the most preferred browser. A recent post by The Economist confirms the trend with new data and a superb interactive chart showing the dominance of different browsers in the countries of the world at different points in time. The overall verdict is clear from the attached chart: Chrome is winning.

  1. Great interactive chart indeed by The Economist. A lot of Chrome's dominance I feel was because of integration with other Google services - inline search and storing preferences by username, which automatically brought users to get chromse on their smartphones too. I am interested in seeing where Yahoo goes with its recent purchase of Rockmelt - the first social browser, and owning as many online properties as Google.
