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.

In fact, if Netapplication would stop doing that, publish graphs with IE being 5% lower and say that "it made no or little difference", that'd be exactly what statcounter does.

Of course it would be interesting to see the results from adclicks.. err adsense.

Somehow, I don't see them bragging.

I don't get this weight by country thing. India has Firefox and chrome top leading in large gap over IE (only 20 percent) and its population is as large as China. until Netapplication release some more data to the public this is just bogus numbers.
There are differences between those web metric companies and it's understandable but they all seems to point to one direction: IE down Chrome up (except Netapplication which indicates that they just playing with the stats).
