Google’s Chrome web browser continues to take market share from its competitors, with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and Mozilla’s Firefox browser losing the most traction.

StatCounter’s latest global browser statistics show that Chrome is the most popular browser in the world with 43% market share, followed by Internet Explorer on 25% and Firefox on 19%.

Apple’s Safari browser is fairly stable on 8.6%, with Opera completing the top 5 with just over 1% market share.
