  1. Google's Chrome managed to break past 7% market share in May, according to Net Applications data, as the increasingly popular web browser continues to lure away users its rivals. Specifically, Chrome rose roughly 0.3 points to 7.1%, while Opera and Appe's Safari each grew 0.1 points to 2.4% and 4.8%, respectively. The share losses came from Internet Explorer, which dropped 0.3 points to 59.7%, and Mozilla's Firefox which saw a slight drop to 24.4%.

  2. When is Chrome coming out for the iPhone?
  3. That is a great question. Who knows...

    It is unbelievable chrome has, what? 1 year stable? And it already has roughly more market share than Safari and Opera combined. Of course, this is mostly thanks to Google, and YouTube for that matter. But still...

    Chrome still needs to be much more polished to beat Firefox overall though, but if it keeps this up, Firefox is going to be in trouble.

    Currently trying out Opera on my laptop. Happy so far. Seems to be stable. Main feature I like compared to Firefox is the Aero Tabbed browsing works for Opera Tabs. Firefox still doesnt work for me and just shows me the tab titles in a stack

    Forget iPhone, where's Chrome for Android?!

    Android uses Webkit for it's browser, similar to iPhone, however Chrome has integrated Adobe Flash into the browser, which is a no no for the draconian Apple market. Chrome could be coming to Android army, but I doubt that it will make it to the bitten fruit. What I would like to know is when?
