Firefox looses ground in browser wars
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.
