Adam Ostrow discusses the impact of the Google Chrome browser as it turns three years old.
Here is an excerpt from his Mashable article, “Happy 3rd Birthday, Google Chrome.”
Google’s Chrome web browser launched three years ago Thursday, a milestone the company marked on its official blog with an interactive infographic and a laundry list of recent improvements to the product.
Google has a lot more to celebrate than a birthday, however. The browser already has upward of 15% market share, and in some markets, like the UK, has surpassed Firefox to become the second most-popular browser behind IE (amongMashable readers, Chrome recently became the most popular browser, passing Firefox).
Given the huge head start that IE, Firefox and its smaller web browser rivals had, Chrome’s adoption rate is nothing short of impressive.
