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.

Chrome is a good web browser on more platforms and obviously Linux is helping their market share.


I use linux and I've recently swicthed from FF to Chromium: faster and cleaner interface.

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.

Go to http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/46974 and click on the "The extension for Chrome" link. Install it, open its configuration windows and select which ones you'd like to subscribe to. Works like a charm.
