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.

Mind that every new firefox version is slightly backwards incompatible.
This seriously cripples firefox validity in prof/enterprise. environments where dedicated web apps release cycle is seriously misaligned with the one of firefox, not mentioning that validation testing effort after each version fairly outweighs the benefits. This unfortunately leaves IE as the only sane choice ... again.
By trailing chrome FF devs are cutting the branch they are sitting on in the enterprise. The only hope is the new generation of fronted devs, raised with respect to standards.


Speaking about enterprise, Mozilla still continues to support Firefox 3.6 and will soon set the 10th version as the base for enterprises.
