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.

Yes, just like Apple's arrogance claiming Safari is: "The world's best web browser" and "The world's fastest web browser".

Chrome is a good web browser on more platforms and obviously Linux is helping their market share. Google are smart with a lot less arrogance.

I agree; it definitely feels faster than Firefox and I don't know how I lived without tabs on the window border in Firefox.

The only thing I don't really like is the lack of a good ad blocker. AdSweep doesn't work on a lot of sites, the AdBlock+ port doesn't seem to support subscriptions, and I really don't want to use a proxy like Privoxy.

All browser vendors talk crap, it’s called marketing. Heck, even Microsoft are claiming that “it’s a tie” when it comes to speed http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/get-the-facts/br...

But then again, I've never seen such blatant lies coming from Opera or Chrome. Of course one can say Opera doesn't market that much, and Google hardly needs to go aboard their websites to show off a product.

I predict IE and Safari will continue spreading lies for it's indeed marketing above the truth yet again.

Just look at the amount of lies there.

Chrome does tabs wrong (open at FAR RIGHT OF LIST, thanks) and there's no option to change it. There are no options for a lot of common things you can normally control. There are no extensions.

Firefox wins again!
