It’s been a long time coming, but if StatCounter’s data is to be believed, Google’s Chrome browser has beaten out Microsoft’s Internet Explorer as the most widely used browser on the Internet. No other browser has been able to give IE a run for it’s money since Firefox came close in 2004.
Many designers and developers will tell you that IE’s dominance has forced a number of undesirable conventions in web page design, but innovations on Chrome’s behalf have helped introduce a slew of new features that have been adopted by all the major browsers. Now that Chrome is pulling ahead we’ll hopefully see even more from Google’s sleek browser.
So when you go to test your website make sure you don’t stop after IE 9 and 8 and 7. Check all your layouts and features in Chrome as well and you’ll be sure you’re reaching the widest audience possible.
