Chrome surpasses Firefox to become second most popular browser

Google Chrome has overtaken Mozilla Firefox to become the second most popular web browser in the world, still trailing behind Microsoft's Internet Explorer

In the browser wars, Google Chrome has moved ahead of Mozilla Firefox, with a 25.7% share in the market, compared to 25.2% of Firefox's share, according to StatCounter.

Chrome has been in the market for three years and it still trailing behind Internet Explorer, which has a share of 40.6% of the market.

"We can look forward to a fascinating battle between Microsoft and Google as the pace of growth of Chrome suggests that it will become a real rival to Internet Explorer globally," said Aodhan Cullen, chief executive of StatCounter.

Cullen said the firm's stats measure actual browser usage, not just downloads of the browser, which shows that people are using it to access the internet.

Chrome had already passed by Firefox in Britain in August, but still stands behind it in the US.
