According to StatCounter, Chrome just edged out Safari to become the third most widely used browser in the United States, claiming 8.97% of the market share to Safari's 8.88%. I guess people really responded to that potato gun speed test.

Chrome has been beating Safari globally for a while now, commanding about 9% of international market share to Safari's 4% or so. And Chrome's growth isn't just bummer for the browsers it's leaving in the dust—it's holding back Firefox, too, keeping Mozilla's browser just shy of the 25% market share mark. [Business Wire via BGR]
