Take a look at this.  I was like what?!!!!!!!!!!!! Google's Chrome is still king! I am sure that EU and Opera would sue Google for anti-trust one day. I see that Opera has gone to unpopular in the world now.

Nope, I use and love Firefox and, after trying Chrome many times over the past few years, so no reason to change :)

I've got Chrome installed, but at the end of the day Firefox is my go-to browser. Too many extensions that I've become reliant upon. I guess I'm one of the 25.14%.

I am using Internet explorer 9 everyday. Did you remember EU and Opera sued MS for Browsers Wars? I feel bad for EU has tiny brain, because Opera wants to be more popular in the world, but it already failed.   EU should not fined MS for over billions dollars a few months ago, so they can sue Google's Chrome in first place!

StatCounter measures page-hits, not unique visitors. Since Chrome users (and to an extent, Firefox users) literally live in the Internet, it is bound to have very large no of page-hits.

I use Internet Explorer and I'm not planning to move anytime soon to another browser. Anyway, I don't trust GlobalStats way of counting either. China is, according to them, as large as Belgium (they both have the same influence on the stats)! I don't understand either why 1 user can count multiple times (they count page views).

Slightly different situation, if memory serves me right. Microsoft got in trouble because IE came bundled with the OS and didn't inform people of other options available to them. For Chrome and Firefox (and the other ones) you need to voluntarily download the browser to use it.

Changing the word doesn't change the difference though. ;)

You can't sue Google for having a majority marketshare because that marketshare was won due to the customer's choice. Or at least, my reasoning works if I was correct about why Microsoft were sued for IE. I'm going to go and check to make sure.

EDIT: This article seems to agree with me. It was about choice, so Google could not be sued for offering Chrome.

EDIT 2: Wait, I just understood what you meant with "EU should not fined MS for over billions dollars a few months ago, so they can use Google's Chrome in first place!"

But still, MS should have been sued for breaking the deal with the EU, and Google cannot be sued for the same reasons.

That's only partially correct. Google Chrome is pushed heavly on google.com and more importantly it is the default browser on many systems (Dell and Sony in my own experience). I can't remember the last time I was not asked to install Chrome on google.com when I went there with IE10/11 and Firefox (my browsers of choice).

True, but you are still being informed that there are choices available to you, aren't you? With Dell and Sony, you get Windows which comes with IE, but they also bundle in Chrome (not sure why, but hey ho). When you visit Google.com you are being told that Google Chrome is available, but you are not obligated to install it. That is why Microsoft got fined, they bundled it with the OS and for the most part didn't inform users that there were other options available to them.

At least, that's my understanding. Like I said, my memory might have muddled things up a bit over time.

What? I'm sorry but it's Chrome that get pushed if you visit Google.com with any browser, it's Chrome that installes itself as part of thousands of programs. Google Chrome is acting like malware. And then you say IE's way was unfair? Chrome is worser. And if it isn't installed on one of those ways, it's done by Google-fanboys that force their family to use another browser they're not used to use. So, "customer's choice"? No, I don't think so.

Does Google notes you that there are other options available as soon as you use their browser? On Android and pre-installs on Windows (most of the time, all IE shortcuts are removed when Chrome is pre-installed). Why is Google not fined? They do EXACTLY the same thing.

I love Chrome for its extensions and how easy they are. I used to use themes but since went back to default. My only annoyance is why does it need to split itself into a dozen separate processes? Oh well, I love how it syncs between my Android phone and tablet too.
