Not a shocker here. Google uses the resources they have, plus have been proving that they're constantly evolving the Chrome Browser. It has replaced Firefox completely now and for good.

It doesn't surprise me that Chrome is gaining market share. Google is doing a decent job at getting their browser "out there". The frequent updates help too.

I'm not surprised either. Chrome is the hottest browser on the market right now.

Good information.

Chrome is awesome. Google has certainly done well. :)

If Opera can get its marketing act together, I wouldn't be surprised to see it make great strides. The 10.50 release beats both Firefox and Chrome at their own strengths, but right now Opera just doesn't have the brand awareness and visibility to compete.

Sadly, Net Application has a history of publishing bogus stats.
