StatCounter Global Stats reports that in the last full week in November, Chrome 15 took 23.6% of the worldwide market compared to Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8 at 23.5%.

But if one takes into account all versions; then IE is still the Global Browser market leader. Google chrome with 23.6 percent Global market share is second. Notably, Google Chrome surpassed Mozilla Firefox to take the number two spot in November.

To sum up the current standings more holistically, it should be remembered that Google announced Chrome for business exactly a year ago and IT administrators appear to have embraced it in a remarkably short time.

However, Chrome 15 overtook IE8 for the first time during the five day working week, of the week 5-11 December 2011.But, It looks as if people favor Chrome on weekends at home but office commercial use has now caught up, says Statcounter.
