In Europe, Firefox more popular than IE

According to StatCounter, Firefox browser has 38.11% of the European market share, while Microsoft IE has 37.52%. However, the situation occurred not because Firefox experience growth, but because Google Chrome took the market share away from Internet Explorer.

“This appears to be happening because Google?s Chrome is stealing share from Internet Explorer while Firefox is mainly maintaining its existing share,” says StatCounter CEO Aodhan Cullen.

Google Chrome has recently experienced remarkable growth in Europe, and jumped from 5.06% to 14.58% market share within 1 year.
