Google Chrome Browser Stats(SURFCHROME.COM) - In a perfect world, wishful thinkers hoped for Google to leapfrog over Mozilla Firefox and compete directly with Microsoft for Internet Explorer's share of the browser market. Tech geeks wish Google Chrome would give Microsoft Internet Explorer a run for its money and drive that virus laden browser out of commission.  Unfortunately, statistics reveal that market share for Google Chrome appears to be rising at the expense of Mozilla Firefox.

But how can it compete with FireFox and not Internet Explorer?  'I'm so confused!"

Here's a theory on why Chrome is more likely to compete with Firefox than Internet Explorer.  Generally, it's the tech savvy individuals that venture to download and install other web browsers as they seek a more secure surfing experience.  The problem is, most people are not tech savvy and settle for the default web browser built into their Operating System which happens to be Microsoft Internet Explorer. The majority of users don't bother to change their default browser, however, for those willing to venture for alternatives there was Firefox, Safari, and die hard Opera fans.   If we add Google Chrome to the mix, those willing to download Firefox might get swayed by Google Chrome.  

The following chart and table represents visitor statistics to SURFCHROME.COM revealing growing market share for Google Chrome and decreasing market share for Mozilla Firefox.  Also note that visits by Internet Explorer users have been relatively steady over the last couple weeks.
