Chrome Boots Firefox out of Second in Global Browser Use

Firefox looses ground in browser wars

Chrome Boots Firefox out of Second in Global Browser Use

I used Firefox for a long time and it drove me crazy nearly daily. It was better than IE in my opinion, but it ate so much of the memory my computer had that I constantly got warnings that it was using too much and my machine ran slower. Not too long ago, I moved to Chrome after getting angry that another update had landed for Firefox and yet more of my plugins didn’t work.

I haven't looked back since I changed to Chrome. I get no more memory warnings and my machine runs better no matter how many tabs are open. The downside to Chrome is that I can't drag photos over to Photoshop like I did in Firefox, but I can live with that. It appears that last month a bunch of other people around the world were fed up with Firefox as well.

Chrome has now kicked Firefox out of the second place spot in global browser popularity reports TechCrunch. Chrome has 25.7% of the global browser market compared to the 25.23% of the market for Firefox. IE still holds 40.63% of the market, but I remember when that percentage was much higher for IE.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
