The worldwide market shares by browser indicate that Chrome dominates overall (42%), with IE in the second most popular position (26%), and Firefox not far behind (19%). Safari (8%) and Opera (1%) complete the overall shares.
However, the market shares by browser vary greatly region by region. In Latin America, Chrome is the number one browser, taking 63% of the market share. The situation is similar in Russia, where Chrome dominates the market with a 39% share.
Browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Opera have made Add-ons a fundamental point in their strategy, which has helped lead Firefox to success and market domination in many markets. But Chrome extension development is the most successful in this strategy, amplifying Extensions with Apps and transforming its Add-ons Gallery to the Chrome Web Store, which has proven to be a very successful channel of distribution.
According to a Besttoolbars market study, Chrome has about a 50% higher installation rate from their directories compared to Firefox. The Internet Explorer Gallery is in its infancy.
As a result, Chrome extension development becomes a crucial part of any marketing strategy for web apps and web services, due to its highly developed distribution channel and significant market share.
