Recent report from Web Metrics confirm that Google’s Chrome has taken the third position as the most popular browser, leaving Apple’s Safari behind. This is an impressive success for Google with its 16 month time period in the market.

Chrome’s simplicity and speed have become the key point of attraction for many users to switch to Chrome. Further, Chrome’s launch was marketed with high focus on stability and speed.

It had interesting comics to promote and educate users on the technology behind Chrome, which was much appreciated by the users. But because it lacked support for extension and wasn’t really friendly for developers, it had to face huge criticisms from the developer community. Also Chrome has to face lot of privacy issues. But with time, the things seem to have settled well.

According to California-based measurement firm Net applications, the share were as follows at the end of December:

  • Chrome : 4.63%

  • Safari : 4.46%



The rise in 0.7 percentage point for Chrome could be the result of its beta edition fof Mac and Linux. Also it might be due to the losing share of Internet Explorer. IE lost 0.94 of a percentage point in each of the last six months of the year. Due to IE 8’s incompatibility, Microsoft had to struggle to promote its browser. IE 8 finally took the center state on December, after it introduced compatibility view data. But the future isn’t bright for IE. Net Applications’ data predict that IE’s share will fall below 50% due to its dramatic negative trend.

Net Applications measures browser usage share by tracking the systems used to visit the 40,000 sites it monitors for clients, which results in a pool of about 160 million unique visitors per month.

Below is the chart from Market Share:

In reply to both this thread and the one about firefox.
I use google chrome , and have been for a long while now.

I've also infected close ones to google chrome. Fact of the matter is, its quick. You don't wait for it to start up, you don't wait for the homescreen to load.
Its like a Jack Russell, its all hyped and ready. As soon as you click the chrome icon he's like: "ok ok, what you wanna do,.. this site? or this site... come on I'm ready , hit me... come on... this site right? yeah that one... cool loading it now.... loaded."

and thats what I'm looking for, the apps from mozilla are really boring me. though I do miss some of them.

Interesting, Firefox still has not managed to have a much larger market share.

The only reason I'm not using Chrome as much is that there is no A/A button on Forumotion nor can I do quick short cuts for bold/center and crap. Unless someone knows how to do that I am all open.

the only reason that IE has that big share is because of all the businesses and schools that are stuck in the IE rut that came with their PCs. Me and a bunch of other friends are trying to get my school to either implement FF or Chrome as the default browser.

nooo safari xD
safari ftw Sad
LOL!
luv the pic with the browsers fighting... and chrome just flying in ready to slam'em xP
chrome is so complicated.. (IMO atleast...)
where is the history... where are all the reseting options Confused
plus chrome's got a weird way of downloading files...
it takes time to get used to it I suppose....
but for Safari everything is right infront of u.. all u gotta do is move the mouse and click on it xD
I've also noticed something interesting....
the coloring is safari looks better than on other browsers.... >.<
on my PC atleast.
also @ Jalokim:
I think the browser u use the most is usually the quickest xD
cause:
1. It set to default browser...
2. It stores cache and cookies so sites open up quicker...
for instance... my IE is ALOT quicker then my chrome... because I use it more...

Most people who have computers don't know a thing about web developing and speed as long as they got their internet games.

That's why IE is popular; even the schools HAVE to use them.

Agree! There are no such thing called Mozilla Firefox while I'm at primary. It's all IE, IE, and IE!

But I myself is using both Chrome and Firefox now. These browsers, to me, are the best. IE? It only lags my pc.

Tip for those who have bad laptops or good ones anyways:
Use Google Chrome as Web Browser! it's the best for laptops! if you have an extraordinary computer( I SAID computer not LAPTOP ), you can use Opera, Mozilla Firefox or Safari, there' all good browsers, but fastest & unique one, is google chrome, best for laptops, i GUARANTEE fast speed. Embarassed
