Safari looses the bronze to Chrome.

chrome-darkAccording to Microsoft, Chrome is nothing more than a “rounding error”. Though as we continually watch Internet Explorers grip on the internet slip further and further down the totem pole (thank god) we can easily pass such comments off as comments made out of fear and uncertainty. It doesn’t matter how Microsoft feels however as Google Chrome has officially moved from #4 to #3 in the browser world, unseating Apple’ Safari.

On my Mac I used to use Safari as my main browser as it was crazy fast and got the job done. I’m not a big plugin/extension user so Firefox’s vast library of add-ons simply doesn’t appeal to me that much. On that note, Chrome appealed to me from the start as I’ve always been a sucker for new things and startups. Even though Chrome isn’t the newcomer it once was, it still has my attention and has effectively rendered Safari on my Mac nothing more than a secondary browser on the rare occurrence that I encounter an issue with Chrome for Mac.

Apple is one of the most competitive tech companies around so don’t expect them to take this dethroning too lightly. Future Safari updates will no doubt match or surpass Chrome’s current offerings further driving the friendly spirit of competition amongst the big four.

What’s your browser of choice and why? Do you see Chrome ever pushing Firefox out of the way for a silver medal finish? If you answered yes to the previous question, how long do you think it will take?
