    Interesting. Microsoft is losing ground. Could this be due to Chrome?

    Firefox has been out for donkeys years and hasn't been strong enough to cause that much of a dent in Microsoft's iron rule.

    Chrome however, is relatively new.

    Chrome has tabs at the top which takes a lot of prime screen real-estate for wide-screens. Opera allows you to put tabs and menus on the sides instead. I only have the title bar thing at the top with the window buttons (need Linux to save 1 vertical bar) and one at the bottom for the things I really need.

    I can't stand chrome because it has no status bar.

    First I tried chrome once and wasn't impressed. Second, it was long enough ago that one can hardly justify the term "New" when referring to it.

    The list can go on. Most likely people are using IE, firefox or chrome though. Konqueror is only for linux, and I think icab is for mac.

    I use chrome, and a few friends who arent as computer savvy also use chrome. We all agree that screen real estate as stated earlier is nice and the search in google feature at the top is nice.

    Google has got so much power over the interwebz why give it more by chosing its browser?

    Firefox ftw
