Chrome for Android arrives for devices using Intel x86 processors

by: Gary SimsSeptember 27, 2012
When Motorola Mobility launched its Intel powered RAZR i less than 10 days ago there was some raised eyebrows when it was revealed that the new phone didn't run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and neither could it run the Chrome web browser. This might be cause for concern about any new phone which is released, but considering that Motorola Mobility is owned by Google and, of course, Google is the custodian of Android and the creator of the Chrome web browser, it is almost alarming. Does the left hand know what the right hand is doing?

Chrome surpasses IE, claims one third of the browser market

by: LucianAugust 6, 2012

Who knew that Google Chrome would get so far? It now accounts for 1/3 of the market, and it has the highest browser market share as well, surpassing the total market share of IE (IE7, IE8, IE9) on its own. Chrome took 33.4% market share in June, according to StatCounter, while IE took only 32%. Firefox was at 23.7%, while Safari was at 7.1%.
