Google Chrome Browser Has Nearly 10 Percent of Market

Google’s Chrome Web browser finished 2010 just shy of the 10 percent mark,

notching 9.98 percent of browser market share through December in a year where

it started at 5.2 percent.

It’s also a big hike from November, when Google grabbed 9.27 percent share, up from 8.5 percent in

October, according to the latest statistics from market researcher Net Applications.

Chrome’s gain came at the expense of market leader Microsoft Internet

Explorer, which fell to 57 percent from 58.41 through November. Mozilla Firefox

remained static at 22.81 percent. Apple’s Safari browser leapt to 5.89 percent

from 5.57 percent in November.

Cracking double-digit market share is a big deal for Chrome, which has grown

considerably since its September 2008 launch without the benefit of an official

platform on which to run.
