Google Chrome is now the third-most-popular browser in the U.S., behind Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Mozilla's Firefox, but ahead of Apple's Safari for the first time, according to a study by Web analytics company StatCounter.

Chrome overtook Safari during the week ending June 27, and now has a share of around 8.97 percent of the U.S. browser market, just ahead of Safari at 8.88 percent. Internet Explorer and Firefox still dominate with shares of 52 percent and 28.5 percent respectively, all versions combined, StatCounter said.

Outside the U.S., Chrome passed Safari some time ago, and now has a 9.4 percent share, compared to Safari's 4 percent. That may be down to the two applications' support for different languages: Safari is available in 16 languages: http://www.apple.com/safari/features.html , while Chrome covers more than three times as many: http://www.google.com/support/chrome/bin/answer.py?answer=95416

StatCounter said it based its statistics on an analysis of 3.6 billion page views, 874 million of them in the U.S., captured from its network of counters embedded in the pages of 3 million Web sites.

I think chrome is passing Safari because it is being forced installed by other software ala the yahoo toolbar whenever you install a new version of Java.  I installed something the other day and got a stealth install of chrome to go with it, gee ain't I lucky?

IMO, main reason for this is that Google is much stronger than Apple on the Net and because off that Chrome "grow up" very fast.
