According Net Market Share, the shares of Google Chrome has increased again by 0.93% in the December 2011 making it to be the fastest growing browser in the web today. As usual the shares of Internet Explorer have again dropped down to 51.87% from 59.22% in February, 2011. The ever decreasing shares of Internet Explorer clearly proves that people have started adopting modern browser rather than sticking to buggy Internet Explorer.
Google Chrome had a great year in 2011 as its shares have increased from 11.41% (in February 2011) to 19.11% (in December 2011). It has been successful in justifying their tagline as the fastest web browser. It is fast and light as compared to many web browsers available today. Other than Google Chrome, there were rise in the shares of Opera too. Its share have risen from 1.55% to 1.66%. Though Opera was not so successful in getting public attention, it was able to bring various good variations to the browser in recent times.
Mozilla Firefox shares have also decreased by 0.31%. Frequent bugs and slow initial start up may be one of the reason for Firefox to lose out its shares to Google Chrome. The current browser rankings are as follows: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, Opera and others. If the shares of other browsers falls in this way then Google Chrome will be the most widely used internet browser in the near future.
