oneandoneis2.org: I saw on ars the other day that IE8 and Chrome are the two browsers with the most momentum at the moment: IE8 because it's the least-bad IE version, and Chrome because it's the hot new kid on the block, one imagines. Strange, really, when one considers how Firefox was the browser that came from nowhere and rekindled the browser wars..
