    Hand in there then. At the two-year birthday you may be at 5 percent market share. But you won’t reach the 10% in three years of existence, no way.

    I mean, unless things change completely, but it’s going to get tougher and tougher from now on.

    chrome will easily get 10% if they manage to make firefox extensions compatible with chrome. stealing market share from minor players like opera, and from majors like ff and ie (however with ie8 being rather good, it is a proces that will slow down), there is a place for chrome with 10%
