Google may be losing the smartphone wars against Apple, but as far as the browser wars go it looks like Google Chrome may have displaced Apple’s Safari as the third most popular browser in the US.
Googleâ€™s internet browser Chrome has overtaken Appleâ€™s Safari in the US for the first time on a weekly basis according toÂ StatCounter, the company which provides free website analytics. The firmâ€™s research armÂ StatCounter Global Stats reports that for the week beginning 21 June Chrome overtook Safari to claim third place in the US browser market. (Business Wire)
Currently Google Chrome ranks third globally, with only the mighty Firefox and IE ranking ahead of the nimble browser.
It probably is only a matter of time when (not if) Google will surpass Firefox as the worlds second most popular browser, which should position the search giant to take on its ancient nemesis from Redmond (aka Microsoft).
