For December, Chrome gains browser market share and IE11 sees strong gains According to the latest NetApplications data, Chrome has regained some browser market share for December, and Internet Explorer 11 saw the strongest growth as more users upgrade to Windows 8.1.
Chrome gained 0.78 percentage points to settle at 16.22 percent share, while IE and Firefox each dipped marginally, to 57.91 percent and 18.35 percent, respectively.

Internet Explorer 11, which is the pre-installed browser for Windows 8.1, saw its share triple to 10.42 percent, with IE10 and IE9 falling an equal amount.

IE8 remains the world's most popular browser with 20.64 percent, which makes sense given that Windows XP users cannot upgrade past that version.

NetApp used data captured from 160 million unique visitors each month by monitoring some 40,000 websites for its clients.
