Google’s Chrome browser has been beating out IE usage on weekends since March 18. People are choosing Chrome for their home browser, while being forced to use IE at work during the week.
Due to Chrome’s automatic updates, more people are using Chrome 18 now, than any other browser version. It’s a delight for developers to know people are automatically going to be using the most recent version of a browser. Probably why I’d expect it to be the most recommended browser by web developers. The graph is amazing to see how quickly use of the “old” (Chrome 17) browser drops off and the new browser jumps up. Compare that to the IE8 and IE9 graphs. They are slowly switching (over years, not days).
Chrome has been experiencing slow but unstoppable growth in browser usage.
Thanks to StatCounter for the cool graphs.
