What’s your favorite browser? I changed from Firefox to Chrome over a year back and it looks like there were several people like me. The latest report from Comscore shows that Google Chrome has grown by over 210% in the year between Sep ’09 and Sep ’10. What’s more interesting is the fact that Internet Explorer, for the first time ever in the past decade, has falled below the 50% market share level.

Here is how the current web browser market share numbers stand. The corresponding number for September 2009 is offered alongside within brackets.

Internet Explorer : 49.9% (58.4%)
Mozilla Firefox : 31.5% (31.3%)
Google Chrome : 11.5% (3.7%)
Safari : 4.4% (3.3%)
Opera : 2.0% (2.6%)
Others : 0.6% (0.7%)

Mozilla Firefox has had an absolutely flat year. Do you see any reason behind this?
