#Chrome now presents up 41.66% of the browser market, 0.31% more than #InternetExplorer and #MicrosoftEdge.
It was once the powerful web browser – with a mode share of 95% in 2002.
However Internet Explorer was hit with a one-two knock with Firefox’s launch in 2004, and the advent of Google Chrome in 2008.
Now Internet Explorer has surely been deposed by Google Chrome as the world’s most popular web browser.
Web analytics firm NetMarketShare states all versions of Chrome are now more popular than all versions of any other browser.
Chrome moves up 41.66% of the browser demand, 0.31% more than Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.
Edge is Microsoft’s replacement for Internet Explorer, which was delivered last year.
As Google also controls the search engine business and mobile operating systems, it manages a large proportion of the internet activity for many internet users.
In the mid-2000s, then-Google leading executive Eric Schmidt was opposing to starting a standalone browser.
He later said: “At the time, Google was a little company,” adding that he did not desire to go through “bruising browser wars.”
But software built by Mozilla Firefox developers served to change his mind, and a beta version published in 2008.
Internet Explorer, which was first named Windows Internet Explorer, was first published as part of the add-on package Plus! For Windows 95.
