Google’s Chrome web browser now has 20.7% of web browser global market share at cost of IE, Firefox

According to the analytics firm StatCounter, Google's Chrome web browser now has a 20.7% grip of the web browser market -- seven times more than it had just two years ago.

Senh: This is very impressive. When Chrome first launched, it was well-received, but adoption was slow. Some have even written it off as a niche market for the tech crowd. Now, it looks like it'll be a major player and a threat to Microsoft's Internet Explorer. Chrome is sleek and fast. When addon's for it catches up with Firefox, I'll probably make the switch too. Currently, I'm using Firefox for web development, and Chrome for general browsing. I barely touch IE, except to make sure that my websites look ok on it.
