Bing captured 9.85% of all U.S. searches in June, up from 9.23% in May, according to data released Thursday by Experian Hitwise. Yahoo's share held roughly steady at 14.37%, while Google's market share fell 1% month-to-month, from 72.17% to 71.65%.
Bing's short-term climb is impressive, but a longer view shows Microsoft's upstart search engine making even bigger inroads against its main rival. [informationweek.com...]
Yeah, I don't know any non-techie that uses Chrome. I used it for a bit but as with most of Google's products, it was crap. Crashed all the time. Google is a Jack of all trades, master of none, excluding search of course. Also didn't trust Chrome at all with the privacy issues. I've been using FF for years now and IE-8 I'm using it more and more lately.
The thing is that Google can't go anywhere but down. Bing search share will keep going up.
