According to internet stats firm StatCounter, Chrome’s grown in use by 50 per cent — and is on track to take the silver medal by December. StatCounter is just one company among many that do the exact same thing, so these figures aren’t ironclad. But the trend definitely is — IE languishes, and Firefox hasn’t done much to excite us in a while. Chrome, on the other hand, at least has Google beating its drum; a luxury afforded by, you know, being owned by megarich Google. The long term trend here — emphasis on long — is the gradual decline of IE. Eventually, I’d expect Firefox and Chrome to take the number one and two spots. It’s just a matter of when, and who’ll be the new king. [ComputerWorld]
