Internet Explorer still clearly dominates the market with 40.6 percent of the global share. Similar to the way Safari gets a boost from the iPhone and iPad, Chrome can reach even more people if it became available on Android devices, which sources say is "very likely.""

    These days I care more about browser security than I do about OS security. All of my lunch money is accessed via the web, not on the OS as much itself.

    Anyway, I started using Chrome because at the time it was secure and less well-known. Who's going to customize browser attacks on something that has 5% marketshare? Now, Chrome hits the 25% mark and begins overtaking Firefox... what do I do now? Chrome is still rated as the most secure browser, but will that continue? I don't want to switch to Opera or S

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all your time.
