    So depending on whom you believe, it either just happened or will in a few months. An impressive rise.

    It makes sense, Chrome is a very well rounded browser that is extremely stable. I had to stop using Safari because it was becoming more of a hog and I didn't like FireFox as a primary browser.

    Well done Chrome. Never really liked the browser myself, however it's sleek and simple look with it's powerful capabilities will attract lots of users. Something for both Joe Average and Mr Tech in Chrome. Its quite amazing to think that it was only two years ago I first heard of Chrome.

    Google have really done well.

    Everytime I see an elder person use Chrome for the first time, their eyes light up. Even they recognize the speed increase. IE just doesn't cut it right now.

    Sorry, I would have responded to this, but I'm at a government building at work and we use IE 7...

    Grats Chrome. :D

    I prefer the browser war today compared to the Netscape / IE war. Even the worst browser isn't that bad and the worst browser isn't the same for everyone. It was true with the Mac for many years and I am glad Windows now has more of a balance.
