The November numbers are in for internet browser market share, and Firefox continues to lose ground to Chrome. Chrome was up 0.56%, Firefox is down 0.37%, IE gained 0.01%, Safari is down 0.43%, and Opera lost 0.01%. Internet Explorer still rules the market at 52.64%, Firefox is in second at 22.14%, and Chrome now sits at 18.18%. Chrome has been on the rise for months now, and should overtake Firefox in under six months at its current pace. There was significantly more volatility in the mobile browser market, with Safari seeing a significant drop off, while Opera Mini saw a sharp increase. Just for reference, I install Chrome on every computer I use, and recently switched from the Android browser to Opera Mini. I would recommend both of them.

chrome is a bad idea its giving your information to google the whole time and not anonymous as they always get you ip address and can see what you are logging in as

Chrome is just as anonymous as Firefox, Opera, IE, etc. There really is no such thing as anonymity on the Internet. Every website can track your ip as well.

Damian is right. Pretty much any website can see where you've been and how you got to their page. Maddox has demonstrated this several times on his website.
