Firefox drops to third place
Chrome is the second most used browser behind Internet Explorer globally

The browser wars have raged for years. Generally, the winner in the market has been Internet Explorer thanks to the overwhelming number of computers worldwide that run the Windows operating system (and don’t bother to change their default browser). For a while now the second most popular web browser has been Firefox, but there have been some changes in the market according to the latest stats.
StatCounter's latest numbers for the browser market show that Google Chrome has passed Firefox to take the second place spot. Firefox is still in a very close third place. Firefox had been kicked back to the third place spot in the UK in July of 2011 reports TechCrunch, so a global second place win isn’t that surprising for Chrome.
Chrome now has 25.7% of the worldwide market as of last month and Firefox has 25.23% of the market. Internet Explorer is still dominating the market with 40.63% of the global share.
In the U.S., Internet Explorer has even more of the market with 50.66% share.
In September, Firefox released version 7 of the browser specifically to address memory issues that plagued older versions of the browser.

I heard somewhere that a study showed that people who use FireFox are, on average, more intelligent than people who use Internet Explorer.

Just saying...

I'm fairly certain that the "study" you're thinking of was a complete sham/marketing move of some survey company or something.

It's not that I disagree with the results, it's just the "study" was a sham.

I would like to see a study that compares internet browser of choice to intelligence/personality types though. The results would be interesting.

Don't worry, we all fall for hoaxes sometimes, I just recently found out that the original guy from blues clues didn't off himself. I believed it for so long because he always seemed like he was on edge.
