Google Chrome overtook Apple Safari in September on the way to tripling its market share from a year before.
The global market share of Microsoft's Internet Explorer fell below 50% in September, a milestone in the web browser wars that started in the mid-1990s, a research firm says.


At the end of September, IE's share dropped to 49.87%, StatCounter reported Tuesday. Just two years ago, IE dominated the market with a 67% share.This is certainly a milestone in the Internet browser wars," Aodhan Cullen, chief executive of StatCounter, said in a statement.

The research firm found that the rising star in the browser market was Google's Chrome, which has tripled its share to 11.54% in September from 3.69% the same month a year ago. In June, Chrome overtook Apple Safari for the first time in the U.S. Mozilla Firefox holds the second largest market share with 31.5%.
