Submission + - Chrome beats IE for first time ever (statcounter.com) 2

Kjella writes: Sunday 18th of March should go down in browser history. For the first in many years IE is no longer then #1 web browser, with Chrome narrowly beating IE with 32.71% to 32.50% while Firefox on third with 24.81%. As the figures are substantially higher for Chrome and lower for IE on weekends it's only for a day but it's another big milestone. While IE still is in a clear lead in North America and Oceania, it is tied with Firefox in Europe while Chrome now leads in Asia and South America and Firefox leads in Africa.

Chrome beats IE for first time ever

  • Only if you separate it by different versions.

    Nothing historical about this. The sum of all IE Versions still beats Chrome. Chrome keeps itself auto-updated so there's no real difference in versions.

      No, you are wrong. IE6 (1.03%) + IE7 (2.22%) + IE8 (15.68%) + IE9 (15.68%) + IE Other (0.03%) = 32.50% < Chrome (32.71%). True it's just for a day but it's a beautiful day.
