Chrome was the top gainer during the period, with more than a half percentage point increase, rising from 4.63 percent in December to 5.20 percent in January. The raving reviews the new version of the browser has gotten is part of the reason for this, the inclusion of extensions has made the browser favorable to many others now. Apple's Safari also gained, but only by a tenth as much as Chrome, moving from 4.46 percent to 4.51 percent. Internet Explorer continues to shed market share, dropping from 62.69 percent to 62.18, while Firefox lost just 0.2 percent, ending January with 24.41 percent.
