Last weeks release of Googles Chrome for Mac OS X and Linux gave the upstart Web browser a major boost in marketshare according to Net Applications, which tracks the browser habits of 160 million unique visitors each month to the 40,000 sites it monitors for customers.
Google's Chrome may be a relatively new entrant in the browser arena, but already it's edged past Apple's long-standing Safari to assume the third-place spot. That's according to market researcher Net Applications, which recently released year-end data indicating that Chrome now accounts for 4.63 percent of the browser market.
