Chrome web browser continues growthApril 5, 2012
In March 2012, for users of the W3Schools website, Google’s Chrome web browser overtook Firefox as the most popular browser.
The W3Schools website monitors user statistics of people with an interest for web technologies, and acknowledges that its’ visitors may be more interested in using alternative browsers than the average user. However the statistics reveal clear universal trends.
Apart from Apple’s Safari which has held a relatively steady position this year, the only browser with a continually expanding market share has been Chrome.
The statistics for March display a continuation of a strong growth trend for the Chrome, with 37.3% share, leading Firefox (36.3%) and Internet Explorer (18.9%), and well ahead of Safari (4.4%) and an ultra-slim favourite amongst programmers, Opera (2.3%).
Chrome entered the market in September ’08, when Microsoft held almost half the market (49%). Since then, as Chrome has grown in popularity by one or two percent per month, Firefox has lost 7% market share, while IE has declined by a massive 41 percent!

Thank you for the development of an updated brand image for Wah Yuet in China.
While originally contracted to produce a video highlighting Wah Yuet's manufacturing capabilities, it was apparent very quickly that your understanding of our requirements, combined with your experience, were the perfect fit to create a new logo and style guidelines for the company. While relatively small in scope, you were dedicated to the success of the project and I am pleased to say that you hit the bullseye!
