Another month, another tussle. The technology world sure is divided when it comes to determining the most popular web browser. StatCounter believes Google Chrome is king, while Net Applications thinks Internet Explorer is the reigning champion.
The company has tabulated new data for the month of June 2014.
And according to the numbers, Internet Explorer leads the browser market with a 58.38 percent share of the market. Google Chrome lags far behind with 19.34 percent.
Interestingly, the top five positions are all taken up by Microsoft’s flagship web browser. Internet Explorer 8 leads the pack with 21.25 percent, version 11 is 17.01 percent, while IE 9 and IE 10 are in the fourth and fifth place with figures of 9.03 percent and 6.37 percent respectively.
Google Chrome 35 is sandwiched between them these in third place with 12.50 percent.
Obviously, one big advantage that Internet Explorer has on competitors is the fact that companies and enterprise users use this browser heavily, in order to access certain applications.
Microsoft is also said to be developing the next version of the web browser, which in most realities would be Internet Explorer 12. Expect official details on this in the coming months, and development ramps up at Redmond.
