Chrome market share continues to grow in August Google's Chrome web browser continued to steadily gain market share in August according to the latest figures from Net Applications.
Although Chrome is still far from the dominant browser with just a 15.51% share, it is slowly catching up with Firefox, which dropped slightly to a share of 22.57%. Internet Explorer remains the market leader with a bigger share than Chrome and Firefox combined.

Perhaps more notable is Internet Explorer 9's improvement to almost 8% of the market because of the fact it isn't compatible with Windows XP.



Starting with August's figures, Net Applications has revised their reporting to separate mobile browsing, which accounted for 6.4% of the market. It includes all iOS, Android, Blackberry, Symbian, Windows Mobile and Java ME devices.

Console browsing is also broken out separately, although it accounts for a negligible percentage of web browsing.
