Chrome Usage Surpasses Firefox For The First Time

The browser wars are heating up. According to statistics gathered by web analytics company StatCounter, global usage in November of Google Chrome overtook Firefox for the first time ever. The current numbers:

  • Internet Explorer: 40.63%
  • Google Chrome: 25.69%
  • Mozilla Firefox: 25.23%
  • Safari: 5.92%
  • Opera: 1.82%

If the trajectory of that graph holds, it looks like IE has a big target on its back — which is both awesome and a little frightening (I can’t be the only one who has a healthy dose of Google fear).
