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.

Stopping a page from loading

Firefox (and others) have a "stop loading" on the menu bar, but Chrome doesn't. That had me scratching my head. With a bit of googling, I discovered that you can stop loading a page in Chrome by pressing the ESC key. And can reload by pressing F5. Apparently, that works for other browsers too, but I didn't know until just today.

Still, would be nice to have a "stop loading" icon. I guess they wanted to save screen real estate.

I'm using Chrome-beta now on Linux, and performance is great. Just what I want, no frills fast browsing.

cheers,
Oz
