Google Chrome Boots Apple's Safari Browser Down to Fourth Place in U.S.
June 28, 2010 8:35 PM
Chrome appears to be slowly picking up steam
Like many Google products -- Android included -- Google's Chrome took a bit to catch on. Now, however, it's arguably one of
the fastest browser available
, and one of the more secure browsers.
Market researchers at StatCounter have
that the browser just kicked Safari to fourth place in America. Chrome now holds 8.97 percent of the U.S. market, while Safari holds 8.8 percent. Both browsers still trail far behind Microsoft's Internet Explorer (52 percent) and Mozilla's Firefox (28.5 percent).
On the global market Chrome is faring even better. It holds 9.4 percent of the market, versus 4 percent for Safari. Globally Firefox holds 31 percent and IE holds 53 percent.
To compile these percentages StatCounter leveraged its network of over three million websites. It logged 3.6 billion page views (874 million from the U.S.) for the week of June 21 to 27, 2010.
Aodhan Cullen, CEO, StatCounter says the browser victory is a promising sign for Google in its expanding war against Apple. He comments, "This is quite a coup for Google as they have gone from zero to almost 10% of the US market in under two years. There is a battle royal going on between Google and Apple in the internet browser space (Chrome v Safari) as well as in the mobile market (Android v iPhone)."
