An interesting article over at Cnet this morning points out that as Google's Chrome usage increases at the expense of IE's usage, Chrome gets closer and closer to becoming the number 2 browser on the market. 
If one in 50 people on the Web move from Firefox to Chrome, Google's browser will unseat Mozilla's for the No. 2 spot in worldwide usage.

You might call him obsessed or just a hardcore geek. Wes's obsession with gaming hardware and gadgets isn't anything new, he could be found taking things apart even as a child. When not poking around in PC's he can be found playing League of Legends, Awesomenauts, or Civilization 5 or watching a wide variety of TV shows and Movies. A car guy at heart, the same things that draw him into tweaking cars apply when building good looking fast computers. If you are interested in writing for Wes here at LanOC you can reach out to him directly using our contact form.

The Dev build is really wonky at this point. I use it on the laptop pretty much just for smut, lol.

Chrome seems to work fine but the audio will stop working after awhile and I will have to install the audio drivers, it will work for awhile then quit working again so I will have to uninstall the drivers again.

Weird. On the plus side, I have had zero issues on the stable builds of Chrome for Windows and Linux.

Wingless do you know if the Windows 8 build has native USB 3.0 support? I havent read anything that seems to indicate that they are for sure going to put that it, If they do hopefully Services for 7 and Vista add it...

I'm having to use IE more, because Battlelog hangs when I launch BF3. Works perfectly with IE.
Seems to work with FF 7.0, but when I updated to FF 8.0 it hangs all the time. Odd enough it actually worked for about 2 weeks. Wondering if a BF3 update caused it?

Thinking about dumping FF after all these years, :( And going with Chrome.

Chrome, I'm hooked.

Tried Firefox and it has too many memory leaks. They may have fixed it but Chrome is faster anyways, at least for me it is.

The memory leaks are still there. They haven't fixed crap since 3.6.x

At work I use IE for official business stuff, but right now, as Im using the computer for personal stuff, I use FF.

At home my usage is pretty split. My wife likes to use IE, and my FF usage is getting higher. I cant stand Safari. Installing FF on my MacBook Pro was one of the first things I did there. I did have to install it on one of my PCs though, as I cant download my online classroom archives with IE or FF.

Opera and Firefox when things don't work well in Opera and since most of the cloud implementations I use for work don't like Opera I have to use Firefox.
