Chrome 15 Puts IE8 in Rear-View Mirror, Takes No. 1 Spot

According to StatCounter, what was predicted late last year has finally come to pass: Chrome has taken the top spot from Internet Explorer 8 as the most widely used browser. This is a first for Microsoft, but Chrome’s lead may be short lived if Microsoft has any say.

Those IE numbers will change if Microsoft new IE upgrading practices take hold. Today the company said it will automatically upgrade IE6 and IE7 on Windows XP to IE8, and upgrade IE7 and IE8 on Windows Vista and Windows 7 to IE9.
