According to the latest Global Stats from StatCounter, Google Chrome is fast approaching the most popular Web browser worldwide. Last week, Google Chrome surpassed Microsoft Internet Explorer for the first time with 32.76 percent market share, while Internet Explorer dipped to 31.94 percent. Currently both are having a difference of less than a percentage in market share.
