Google Chrome Crosses The 20% Market Share Mark, Opera Goes Below 1%

By | August 11, 2014 | 3 Comments



It’s almost the middle of August so it’s time to dive into the desktop market share numbers and as always, we start with the Internet Explorer, which is no longer in an uptrend, now down by 0.37 point, from 58.38% to 58.01%.

As you could’ve guessed from the title, Google Chrome has finally crossed the 20% mark, up from 19.34% to 20.37% (1.03 point increase) and is targeting 1/4 next.

Firefox on the other hand has since lost all the momentum and is down again, this time by 0.46 point, from 15.54% to 15.08%.

Next is Apple’s Safari, which too is in a downtrend, in July its market share has decreased by 0.12 point, down from 5.28% to 5.16%.

Lastly, Opera, which continues to struggle and has since went below the 1% mark, from 1.05% to 0.99% (0.06 point decrease).

That’s all for now, folks.
