Opera was the only other major browser to lose share by dropping to 2.3%. Meanwhile, Firefox and Safari both saw small gains that put them at 24.59% and 4.72% each. The figure is a record for Apple but for Mozilla it seems gains that had once come easily to it are now heading Chrome's way instead. Google and NetApplications have said they expect the newcomer browser to have anywhere between 8.5 and 10% share by the end of 2010.
NetApplications measures browser usage share by collecting systems data from the computers that visit the 40,000 sites it tracks for customers of its analytics services. You can find the detailed list at the company's website.
