Browser Wars Stackup Graph

Since Netscape Navigator came on the scene in 1994, graphical web browsers have become a regular part of daily life. Nowadays there are a lot of choices, but the general trend seems to be that the browsers with the least amount of user share are regarded the most highly. Chrome and Opera certainly look ahead of the curve.

Based on the results, Chrome and Opera are significantly better than average. That's some good news for them!

Also, it looks like Internet Explorer is obviously worse than the others, so you might want to avoid it.
