Here is the browser market share for January 2012, based on traffic to my top site (number in parentheses shows change from December 2011):

IE: 34.66% (+0.01%)

Google Chrome: 29.05% (+0.56%)
Safari: 1.90% (-0.01%)
Opera: 1.42% (-0.20%)

Google Chrome continues to gain market share during the first month of 2012, gaining another 0.56% to 29.05%. It is now slightly less than 3% behind Firefox. At the current rate of change, it will catch up to Firefox by May of this year. IE remains stable for the second month in a row. Firefox, on the other hand, lost ground for the second month in a row.
