Internet & Networking According to StatCounter's figures (whatever they're worth) Chrome is now the most popular browser in the world, overtaking Internet Explorer for the first time. How times change. Let's hope Google, Firefox, and Opera have some good Metro stuff coming up, because IE on Windows 8 has a terrible UI.

Statcounter stats are pretty flawed. Above stats aren't perfect either, but much less flawed.

To begin with, since Chrome precache links (=it fetches the links even if you don't click them), if you don't count precached links as +1 suddenly Chrome market share looks small.
