Chrome Picks Up Some Shine

Ten percent share might not sound like much, but in a market dominated by IE and Firefox, Chrome's latest showing ain't too shabby. The lean and quick Google browser now owns a full tenth of the market according to NetApplications, which regularly researches this area. IE has its worst showing ever with just over 57 percent of the market.

I'm sure Google is relatively pleased, but is perhaps more flattered that IE 9 mimics much of the lean and mean user interface introduced by Chrome.
