    Google Chrome showing the first signs that it’s struggling as its market share goes up… They haven’t had an increase as slow as this since… a year ago?
    Meanwhile, Firefox is in its usual holiday break (it’s every year the same), so get ready Chrome, cause when September hits, and specially when Firefox 4.0 hits, you’re going down!
    Well, it’s going down mostly because it’s the same browser now, version 5, as it was in beta… No innovation. Firefox 4 is loaded with awesome innovative stuff!

    (2) IE Share fell little bit only, this will force microsoft to release IE 9 a best browser ever.

    they should also check Bitstream’s Bolt mobile browser…… it’s now a decent contender against both Opera Mini 4.x and 5…….
