Google Chrome, a personal favorite software of ours, has recently surpassed Internet Explorer as the most used web browser worldwide. Chrome launched in September 2008 and has become more and more popular ever since. In the US, IE still reigns supreme, but Chrome has been creeping up since it's debut.
The advantages we see in Chrome are that it's pretty lightweight. It doesn't use a ton of your computer's resources while running. It's also pretty minimalist, leaving more room for the internet, and less for toolbars and search boxes.
