Last week's release of the the beta of Chrome for Mac OS X, has pushed Google's browser share past Safari and into the number three spot according to Computerworld.
Google had shipped out beta versions of Chrome for Mac on December 8. Less stable "developer" builds had only been previously available.
Net Applications, which tracks browser habits of 160 million unique visitors each month to the 40,000 sites it monitors, said Chrome's share jumped 4.4% for the week of December 6-12, which was an increase of .4 percentage points for Google.
Chrome's share throughout that week had topped Safari's 4.37% according to Vince Vizzaccaro, Executive VP of Net Applications.
However, Chrome still remains far behind Microsoft's Internet Explorer, which had a 63.6% share and Firefox who maintained a 24.7%.
