Google Chrome, probably Google’s most widely used desktop application, for the first time has become the world’s second most used browser on monthly basis overtaking Firefox. According to web analytics company StatCounter, 25.69% of internet users have accessed the web through Chrome during November 2011, while 40.63% used Internet Explorer (IE) and 25.23% used Firefox.

StatCounter’s  CEO, Aodhan Cullen, has clarified about the analysis stating, “Our stats measure actual browser usage, not downloads, so while Chrome has been highly effective in ensuring downloads our stats show that people are actually using it to access the web also.” The stats are based on aggregate data collected on a sample exceeding 15 billion page views per month (4 billion from the US) from the StatCounter network of more than three million websites.

Although, some people can disagree with these statistics, StatCounter Global Stats shows a negative trend for both IE and Firefox. And, it can be assumed that Google Chrome may outrun IE to become the world’s most used web browser.

Surprisingly, it seems that users have selected Chrome as their preferred browser because of its speed and other features over its privacy issues. For Firefox, it seems that they need to work on their issues like high memory usage and fast responsiveness, if they want to remain competitive.
