Google Only weeks ago StatCounter reported that Chrome pushed past Firefox to become the second most popular web browser after IE. A new StatCounter report says Chrome 15 has jumped into the number one spot, replacing IE8. This is the first time a non-Microsoft browser has led the list in StatCounter's tracking.

On the web, instead of checking the version number, you should verify if a particular feature is implemented and then use it.

Tools like Modernizr make this easy. Use that instead of tracking version numbers.

Also, for a browser like Google that upgrades installs almost invisibly, it's makes sense to just test in the current version (and if necessary, one version back). If someone's using Chrome, they are most likely using the latest version.
