The latest Statcouter statistics show that Chrome is gaining market share in the South African Internet browser market at the expense of Internet Explorer and Firefox.

According to Statcounter’s November 2013 browser statistics for SA, Internet Explorer is the most popular browser with a market share of 36.76%. Chrome is a close second with 33.23%, and Firefox third with 15.75%.

Over the last few years Internet Explorer’s local market share plummeted from around 80% to below 40%.

The biggest benefactor of this decline was Google’s Chrome browser, as shown in the graph below.
