In the News NetApplications has released its latest browser market share figures, and these figures show that Chrome has overtaken Safari as the number three browser worldwide, behind Internet Explorer and Firefox. IE, by the way, continues to lose popularity rather fast.

On the Mac, I am holding onto Safari. Does not mean I feel its great, just that the alternative is not there yet.

Firefox' UI is slow. SLOW. I cannot stress that enough. It still pretends to integrate with the OS, rather than actually doing (opening zip files with Stuff It? That diplodocus has never been even installed).

Chrome is still beta and it shows.

Still, I *need* certain Firefox extensions (Rikaichan mostly). I love both Firefox' smart keywords and Chrome's keyword search. The search engine field now feels in the way after using Chrome's location bar.

Safari's location bar feels now so… restrictive. It good for nothing but entering URLs!

The moment Chrome gets those Firefox' extensions I need, while keeping its UI's speed and OS integration, bye-bye Safari.
