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.

Agreed, also Firefox gives you the choice to go back to the old interface (menubar and tabs down) so I don't see the problem. You can disable animations on tabs, it comes with RSS support, a good integration with GTK+ (at least looks ok). I still don't understand why Chrome is so popular...

It's a good product, it brings something new to the table and Google poured enough money into it until it got the ball rolling.
