Google Chrome continues its charge ahead, and has finally overtaken Safari to become the third most popular browser in the United States. With 8.97% of the total browser market, Chome now sits behind only Firefox and Internet Explorer -- both of which will take a little more time to catch.
Globally, Chrome fares better still -- with a 9.4% share. That's a pretty meteoric rise for a relatively young browser -- though when you've got a Google-sized marketing networking and partners galore, it's a little bit easier to pull off.
I know it's not even two years old yet, but frankly I'm amazed that it took this long for Chrome to surpass Safari. What about you?
