    Um, what?

    “This time Firefox has lost 0.77 point of its market share and went down from 22.98% to 23.75%.”

    That’s not a loss unless you’re saying it’s a loss of -0.77 points. Firefox _gained_ 0.77 points from 22.98% _up_ to 23.75%.

      Hello, I was unaware you read this. He means it went up 77.

      Anyway, this decision from getting stats from NetApplications rather than StatCounter should be resolved with a poll on which we prefer.

    People is starting to be realize that Chrome is the browser & is the browser of the future. Finally we can have developers taking more seriously Chrome because is the best.

      What I like about Chrome is that it brings more heat on Firefox devs and they could work more on important things which are really important not important by themselves only. That good thing is called competition and is what I like very much.
      Chrome loooks promising but these version bumps are really silly.

    Indeed, fixed.

    Chrome definitely isn’t the browser of the future.
    That’s all I have to say today…

    Chrome is so much faster! Unless you really need to use the Add-On in Firefox, else I really have no idea why people still using it.

      Not out of the box enough for me. We will see about artificial JS speed when Carakan is around.

    Chrome isn’t the future browser! It got nothing except for the speed. Google sacrificed all its other features for just speed! On the other hand, Firefox has got everything! Just everything optimized for a professional web browsing experience! Chrome is just a ‘kid’ trying to gain the attention of developers and cyber surfers! Firefox rules the web!
