Microsoft (MSFT) can complain all it wants about StatCounter’s methodology, but the firm has once again shown Google (GOOG) Chrome besting Internet Explorer as the world’s top browser last month. In fact, Chrome has expanded its lead over Explorer and now accounts for nearly 34% of all page views while Explorer accounts for 32% of views. The latest StatCounter numbers also showed Firefox has continued a slow but steady decline, falling to just under 24% in July, down from around 28% in July 2011.
