Chrome poised to take No. 2 browser spot from Firefox [computerworld.com]
Google's Chrome is on the brink of replacing Firefox as the second-most-popular browser, according to one Web statistics firm.
Data provided by StatCounter, an Irish company that tracks browser usage using the free analytics tools it offers websites, shows that Chrome will pass Firefox to take the No. 2 spot behind Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE) no later than December.
As of Wednesday, Chrome's global average user share for September was 23.6%, while Firefox's stood at 26.8%. IE, meanwhile, was at 41.7%.
Not all of my sites show this trend. There are several where Firefox has a secure 2nd place. In Asia the numbers are very close. Only in China do I already see Chrome in 2nd.
