Current State of the Browser Wars

Posted at June 1, 2011

NetMarketShare just released its stats for global browser usage in May 2011.  In the United States, it’s notable that Internet Explorer version 9 is not yet in the double-digits.  It will get there, no doubt.  But for those of you who have not yet checked your site for compatibility issues in IE9, it would be wise to do so.  This will become the #1 browser over time.

Google’s Chrome browser is also gaining nicely.  While some might think that this is because of the explosion of Google Android devices, it’s actually not true.  Android devices do not use the Chrome browser; rather, Android reports its browser name as Safari.

Here’s the interactive view of the data in case you want to compare it against previous months:
