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.

Actually from a UI design perspective one thing in Chrome that drives me nuts is the way bookmark folder menus work from the bookmarks bar. If I click the folder it opens a "menu" showing me the bookmarks however clicking the folder again does not close this "menu", instead is reopens it at the current pointer position. Now if these were tear off menus I could (maybe) forgive this behaviour, but they are static menus that you then have to click off somewhere else to close if you decide not to select something from them, and if you click in the wrong place you could very well trigger a link on the page or select another tab or background window even. Horrible implementation.

Good news: This has been fixed in the 4.x beta.

Not yet for the Page and Tools menus, though:
