I remember that for quite a long time after launch, Google Chrome browser occupied about a percent of the browser market. And so it went on for quite a long time, analysts even predicted a quick death for the browser, which was popular only among geeks and fans of the products of the “corporation of good”. But here, Google launched a large-scale advertising campaign of its browser for different countries (I somehow saw the Japanese - I liked it), and Chrome began to pay attention not only to geeks, developers and Google fans. Gradually, the popularity curve of this browser went up.
It is clear that the higher the curve led, the more rapidly the popularity began to grow. So, the latest data, shown by well-known analytical company Net Applications, which is engaged in research of various network products, the share of Chrome in the browser market has reached 7.5%. This is indeed a significant achievement - the browser market is very extensive, and it is very difficult to deal with such “whales” as the notorious IE, Mozilla Firefox or the same Opera with Safari. But there are also other, less well-known, but more or less successful solutions that are also competitors for Chrome.
Nevertheless, this browser continued to slowly increase its popularity, and now it is constantly growing, but for other browsers things are worse - their market shares are gradually decreasing, albeit only slightly.
Interestingly, Microsoft Internet Explorer is still in the first place with its 60.4% (although only recently, I remember, there were a little more than 70%). In July, the share of this browser was 60.7%. Mozilla Firefox does not move forward or backward, staying at its 22.9%. As for Safari, it was able to increase 0.1%, receiving 5.1% of the total browser market share. Statistics for Opera for some reason is not given, which is quite strange.
Well, our hero, Google Chrome, was able to increase 0.3%, rising to the above point from 7.2% last month. It is worth noting that the growing popularity of this browser may be partly due to the constant updates regularly released by the developers of the Google Chrome team. Developers, by the way, promise to speed up the process of releasing new versions of the program.
In part, they have already fulfilled their promise by releasing the beta version of the Chrome 6 browser in August, substantially adding functionality and adding a number of purely cosmetic additions. They also promise to release the long-announced Chrome OS for laptops and netbooks. As for the latter, I want to test it already ...
In general, well done developers, what to say.Source of
