Chrome surpasses Safari in browser market share According to analytics company StatCounter, Google Chrome has surpassed Safari as the third most popular Web browser, although both still remain far behind Internet Explorer and Mozilla's Firefox.
Chrome now has 8.97 percent share in the U.S., passing Safari at 8.88 percent.

IE, all iterations included, leads the way at 52 percent, and Firefox is in second at 28.5 percent.

Internationally, StatCounter says Chrome took third a long time ago, and now holds 9.4 percent, compared to Safari's small 4 percent. The company attributes that to Chrome having language support for 48 languages, while Safari only has support for 16.

StatCounter bases its stats "on an analysis of 3.6 billion page views, 874 million of them in the U.S., captured from its network of counters embedded in the pages of 3 million Websites."
