Chrome overtakes IE

Stuff reports:

Microsoft’s Internet Explorer is no longer king of the browser hill.

That distinction belongs instead to Google’s Chrome, which according to NetMarketShare.com, registered a collective desktop market share for all versions of the browser of 41.67 per cent in April, nipping IE, which had a 41.37 per cent share.

The market share for Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer’s successor, is included in the tally.

Mozilla Firefox (9.76 per cent), Apple Safari (4.91 per cent) and Opera (1.89 per cent) round out the top five.

I’ve have not used IE for 15 years or so. Netscape Navigator and then Firefox for many years and Chrome for the last few.

On Kiwiblog the browser breakdown is:

  • Chrome 44%
  • Safari 27%
  • IE 11%
  • Firefox 11%
  • Edge 3%
