Google A new report from StatCounter says Chrome's popularity now edges out Firefox. It says Chrome has a 25.69% share of the global browser market while Firefox claims 25.23%. Microsoft's Internet Explorer is still #1 with a 40.63% share. If true, Google has pulled off quite a feat with a browser they only introduced in late 2008. StatCounter claims to measure browser use rather than just downloads.

I trust FF more than Google or Microsoft

When Chrome was first coming out I read several articles questioning Google's privacy policies. It's pretty clear their business model is based on gathering information about you. I'm grateful to have a free open source alternative in Firefox just because I trust the Mozilla Foundation more than Google or Microsoft.
