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.
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.
