Well, that's one less thing for Apple to brag about. Google's Chrome web browser has just overtaken Safari in US market share according to a press release sent out by StatCounter. In the week of June 21, Chrome hit 8.97% of the market. Safari, on the other hand,. languished at just 8.88%. For a bit of perspective, Internet Explorer still holds 52% of the market while Firefox makes up for 28.5%.
On a global scale, Chrome has 9.4% of the market while Safari holds just 4%. I'd advise against Google sitting too pretty on those numbers, though. If there's one thing Apple knows how to make, it is a comeback.
