The numbers are in for March of which Web browsers were leading the way for the month, and there were a few surprising shifts in the percentages.
Lets take a look at the chart for this month and see how it stacks up against the previous. All measurements are according to NetMarketshare.

Is there any thing that can stop the endless growth of Google Chrome? Once again the browser jumped up, and this month it was by an impressive .64%. Sure it wasn’t a full percent, but considering it does this almost every month, is there really any reason to not just be amazed by it?
Last month was a bit rocky for everyone, and we even saw Internet Explorer reverse its usual trend and enjoy some growth. Alas, we’re back to the sliding market share for the Microsoft browser. Perhaps Internet Explorer 9 will help it out some, but it better do it fast as it’s speeding towards the 50% mark.
Firfox gained back some ground it lost last month. With Firefox 4 coming out in the last week of the month it’s doubtful it had much impact, so we’ll see how April shapes up for them.
Opera held steady at 2.15%, the same number it had last month. It looks like this browser is just going to have to enjoy staying in that general range.
Apple’s Safari just quietly keeps growing each month, and it does make you wonder when the big boys finally notice there’s a little guy back there swimming behind them, but he is indeed slowly creeping up on them.
What do you think? Did you change your primary browser in March?
