Safari smudges Chrome

Apple browser unaffected

Google's Chrome browser has stolen market share from every competitor except Apple's Safari, according to internet measurement company Net Applications.

At the end of its second week, Chrome accounted for 0.85% of the browsers that visited the 40,000 sites monitored by Net Applications, an increase from the 0.67% of the week before.

Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera and Netscape all dropped, but Safari gained nearly 0.7 percentage points.

Vizzaccaro has an idea why. "[Chrome] isn't available on Mac OS X yet," he says. Until Google issues a Mac-specific version, the only way Apple users can run Chrome is in a Windows-based virtual machine, or by using Apple's Boot Camp dual-boot utility.
