the above survey shows that other OS’s have lot to do to get over internet explorer yet as IE is still in majority even though faster & secure browsers like Chrome, Opera & Firefox do exist , but as Windows easily ships it’s browser with the Windows OS , so it automatically achieves the greater share 🙂

From my personal experience I like chrome a lot, but absence of plugins/addons equivalent to those on firefox make that cruising experience bit annoying but for general browsing Chrome is Awesome
