Google's Chrome exceeded 20 percent of the worldwide Internet browser market during the month of June for the first time, according to web site analytics company, StatCounter.
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.
According to the statcounter's last week update, Chrome has finally overtaken Safari and has now earned Third position in the US Browser market. On an International scale, Chrome is way ahead of Safari, with more than twice its market share, but for the first time it has conquered it in United States.
Google launched Chrome for iOS in June. By mid-July, Google’s browser for Apple’s operating system had managed to get about 1.5% of the market and has been adding new users ever since, despite the fact that Apple makes it very hard for its users to switch browsers.
