    Market share for mobile, browsers, operating systems and search engines | NetMarketShare

    Chrome may go below 10% when this year ends as Firefox and IE keep rising and at fast pace.

    I cannot believe this, wow. Chrome is really good, better than IE IMO. I don't think the share will drop for it. I expect Firefox or opera to lose a lot.

    Wonder how many chrome installs are because people don't know to uncheck the box on an adobe flash update.

    My opinion:

    IE10 > Chrome >>>> FireFox

    IE 10 is my default browser (Even after years of using Chrome) , I sometimes get stuck with a website that requires Chrome and I launch Chrome do my biz and exit it immediately , IE10 however should be a monthly iteration and not a yearly one , lets hope the folks at Redmond will agree to that.

    I was a Firefox user probably for a decade. With Win8 I thought I'll give IE10 a chance cos I heard it's much improved and I havn't gone back since. I did try Chrome back when I used Firefox, but didn't see anything that would've justified relearning the new software.

    Now it's good that I just use IE, cos then it'll work nicely with fe. my Surface RT or perhaps the upcoming Xbox One that are more or less forced to using IE anyways, so I can have websites etc synced.

    How do You cope with all those ads? I was pleased with IE speed and flow and i'd love to use it over my FF but those damn ads... They're everywhere. I downloaded some of those tracking protection lists but it doesn't do the job as i expected.
    Using my FF most of ads (say 99%) are blocked, sites are clean and there are no blank spaces in between.
    Is there any way to do it in IE?

    Not really. You'll be stuck with those blank spaces, but it doesn't bother me. As long as sites are fast, I am happy.

    Okay, i can live with blank spaces but what about ads? Are TPL the only way to block them? Or are there some hidden adblock addons that i missed while researching IE? Those TPL available on IE site are no good for most sites i use.

    I think they have adblock and others available, but they are mostly paid. That's why I just stick to TPL.

    I don't mind most ads. I realize that websites need to make money.

    I don't like pop-up ads though. Yuck. Get out of my way.

    I use adblock plus, request policy and ghostery in Firefox. I haven't found anything like those for IE yet.

    If you could install Adblock Plus for IE10 i'd swap from Firefox... But I simply cannot put up with those ads on Youtube etc... Forcing you to watch a 30 second video before you can see the content you want.

    No thanks google.

    Exactly, there is nothing you cant download from the internet these days which doesn't have Chrome attached to it. Saying that, for those with XP I advise them to install Chrome or Firefox but IE has come a long way since IE9. IE10 is awesome and so will IE11 but perception is a problem especially when the majority of sites are coded for IE8 and Webkit browsers. Its a good thing that Google are going to fork away with Chrome, it will perhaps force developers to code for web standards rather than particular engines and this will be good news for IE10+

    Ha ha true!

    On the flip side, I wonder how many people use IE because it comes by default on a PC.

    That depends on country. In Europe people need to pick a browser when they set up a new PC. What is the Browser Choice update? (KB976002) - Microsoft Windows

    Unless they are somewhat of a techie, or have a friend that has turned them on to alternative browsers, probably a good many. I know a lot of my friends didn't even know they had chrome on their computer. Much less what it was and asked if it was ok to uninstall it when I told them what it was and how they got it.

    IE was terrible......about 7 years ago. But IE8 was a real turning point, IE9 was even better but IE10 is fantastic and eats chrome for breakfast. It is so fast in my windows 8 computer. Its easy to use and very fluid. I have never liked chrome, these days it is very insecure what with googles past and current record of privacy issues. In fact Microsoft are emphasising security in their ads in the UK probably aimed at google. I will admit with IE10 there is room for improvement, flash player needs to be standards on the non desktop version and the touch input for some websites needs improvement, but I think they are coming in windows 8.1, so yeah. I can see why chrome is loosing its market share. firefox is good as well.

    I've been using Chrome for several years now and it has been a great browser. IE10 is much better than previous versions but it still lacks a good development tool. The code inspector is great in Chrome but quite archaic in IE. As a web developer, I can't avoid Chrome until Microsoft makes an equivalent developer tool.
