Real Estate Arizona Browser Stats

by

Google’s Chrome is now the most popular Web browser worldwide, surpassing Microsoft’s Internet Explorer for the first time. Chrome took the lead with 32.76 percent of the market share while IE has just slightly less at 31.94, the figures are for the month of March.

While this is amazing considering that only a year ago Chrome trailed by nearly 25 points (43-19) I wanted to pat real-estatearizona.com readers on the back for being ahead of the curve.

The chart below shows traffic to the website. As is almost always the case Google chrome is way ahead of the competition. Firefox is in second place and IE is in a distant third, right where it belongs.
Also I have to give a shout out to the diehards coming in at 10 on the list.  Even though there are only two of you, you hate IE /love chrome so much you were able to find a workaround for it on your locked down office computers.  Keep up the good work!

So are you still one of the unlucky few still using IE? Let us know which browser you are using in the comments below.

It would be interesting to see how much of the above traffic to your site was generated through mobile browsers. I wouldn’t be surprised if Chrome surpassing Internet Explorer was caused by the rise of the Android phone, which use Chrome as their default browser.

As the linked article discusses, the majority of every homebuying demographic (adults) accesses the internet on your mobile phone. Impressively, 80% of 25-34 year olds and 68% of 35 to 44 year olds use mobile internet. It stands to reason that a healthy proportion of the traffic your site experiences comes from mobile sites.

Also, consider the demographics of Chrome users; while IE users tend to be older and less tech-savvy, Chrome users are younger and more hip with technology. It seems likely that your site is more popular (relatively speaking) among the latter demographic… wonder what ramifications this will have for your business?
