Google Chrome Leapfrogs Internet Explorer as the Web's Top Browser.

This is kind of amazing. Firefox has been ubiquitous in my surroundings for years now, but we never saw a headline like this as a result.

I find this fascinating because when I talk to family and friends and mention Chrome, no one is using it — but a number are using Firefox, the others Safari. I’m trying to wrap my head around just what did it for Chrome and so quickly. Was it because they touted it so heavily amongst their search engine results pages? Are people less turned off by it than Firefox when making the initial switch and they’re more likely to stick with it? I realize these stats are in and of themselves not truly accurate, but the trend is at least super interesting.
