Google's Chrome web browser just passed Microsoft's Internet Explorer to become the most-used browser in the world, says the latest data from a digital analytics service.

Although Chrome has edged out IE before for short periods, the last week marks the first time Chrome was the No. 1 browser for a sustained period of one week. Exactly 31.88% of the world's web traffic was done on Chrome, according to StatCounter, while IE is a close second at 31.47%.

<double-yawn> I prefer to use FF, but a major zapp wiped out most of my file associations and I don't know enough to recover or build them back, so I'm forced to use IE8. <groan> I think I would like Chrome, but I don't like Google all that much due to privacy concerns.

I use Chrome, though I might use IE9 if I could. But since you cannot install IE9 on an XP machine, I'm stuck with IE8.
Is that Bill's not-so-subtle way of nudging everyone back to the future?

Always have and always will use IE for business.
Given its habit of sweeping change from one release to the next, IE is arguably the most poorly suited browser to business use.

There are limitations to a 10 year old OS.
You'd think so, but I use both 7 and XP SP3 daily, and so far the only program I can't run on XP is IE9. Otherwise, every other program I use runs equally well on both platforms. :shrug:

The only reason IE9 won't run on XP is to try to get the die hard XP users to update. It's going to take a lot more than that..... ;)

I left Firefox and switched fully to Chrome about 6 months ago.
Being able to automatically sync my Bookmarks and other settings across multiple computers is invaluable to me.
I'll research something at night and then bookmark the information.
When I get to the office, it's right there where I left it.
No more e-mailing links to myself.

Couple that with Chrome's Adblocking extensions, and you'd have to waterboard me to get me to go back to the dark cages of IE or FF.

I just skimmed the article, but saw no mention of how many people use Chrome Frame in IE.
I have fixed many user's IE script errors by removing malicious add-ons and installing Chrome Frame.
