According to the analyst company, Net Applications, 2010 was a very good year for Google Chrome. In December, the browser was used by 9,98 percent of the world’s Internet users. That’s more than twice as many users compared to December 2009 when Chrome only had 4.63 percent of the market.

The statistics from Net Applications shows that Chrome has gained most of their market share at the expense of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, which has slowly decreased in recent years. The latest version of Internet Explorer 9 does provide some hope for Microsoft, as it rose from 0.4 percent in November to 0.5 percent in December.
