How popular is Google’s Chrome browser compared with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer?
I personally prefer Google Chrome, but it seems Internet Explorer is more popular, probably because it comes bundled with Windows.

Chrome and IE is equally popular, another one is Firefox.
Google Chrome recently surpassed Internet Explorer as the most popular web browser in the world according to a few sites, but the race is still really close. 32% for Chrome, 31% for IE, 25% for Firefox. A difference of 1% doesn't really matter that much, and 5% is still really close. It seems that Chrome is more popular on weekends and after work hours, so IE may be more widely used during work.

Google Chrome is much faster. Internet Explorer is still bogged down by lots of features crammed into it. As a matter of fact Chrome also runs faster than Firefox. Try them out in your computer and you should see the glaring difference.
Both browsers are very popular, and nowadays both have an almost equal share around the world. But if you look by country, you can see that in countries like Brazil Chrome is more popular than IE.
If you want to know more, I did this about about the use of the browsers around the world.
I use Chrome a lot, i find it faster and does not tend to embed a lot of ad-ons.
I don't know how popular it is, but I like it a lot better. It just performs better on my newer computer. On my older computer I like FireFox best.
