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.

It's all about perceived quality, and marketing is only one factor in that. Very important is the perception of the geeks that recommend things to friends & family and companies; that's how Firefox grew.
I found that the Firefox daily builds were using so much CPU somehow, that I had to switch to Chrome, which is light both on CPU and memory. It's extendability is not as well developed yet, but we're making do.
