http://www.linuxinsider.com – 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. Microsoft's Internet Explorer still holds the top position, with 62.69 percent of the market, while Mozilla's Firefox weighs in at No. 2, with a 24.61 percent market share. Safari, now in fourth place, accounts for 4.46 percent. (General)
