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.

Google funds Firefox's development.


This is completely wrong, but not the first time I've seen this myth being propagated.

The truth is that Google and Mozilla Corp. have a revenue sharing program around search. This is a contract between two commercial entities, there is no "funding" here.
