Many workplaces lock down what people can and can’t do from their computer – understandably so in most cases. However, when people aren’t at work they’re free to choose what browser they use. My personal favorite, Chrome, reached a milestone and surpassed IE as the most used browser in the world on Sunday, March 18, 2012. For several hours, Chrome was the most used browser, taking 32.7% share. IE, the leader for the last decade, fell to second at 32.5%.
Overall, IE is still in the lead for the worlds most used browser, averaging around 35% of the market share. Thankfully IE9 has built-in support for a lot of features in CSS3 and HTML5. The release date for IE10 is sometime in 2012, and it’s supposed to have support for even more CSS3 features. Anyone still using IE8 or lower please upgrade!
