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.

I agree, it isn't really a surprise at all. I used to use Firefox for everything but I love Chrome now. I like it since pages with Flash crash and I can quickly kill the tab without the browser crashing. I know Firefox is going to have separate processes for tabs soon. I will probably switch back to Firefox when that happens. The speed of JavaScript applications also has me hooked. I just need extensions to make the experience complete. It appears Firefox is becoming more Chrome like. I see the latest beta version removes the menubar. Sometimes people forget you can right-click on the Firefox toolbar and select customize to remove any UI junk you dislike. Even more unknown about Firefox, you can move urlbar, icons, whatever all to the top menubar to save screen realestate. Then you just hide the remaining toolbars and you are left with a sleek browser UI.
