Although Google's Chrome browser accounts for only around three percent of browser users, it's about to get a big boost: Sony will be bundling the third-place browser on new Windows computers, right next to Internet Explorer and Minesweeper.

This leads to the speculation that Sony might eventually include Google's upcoming Chrome operating system as well... can you imagine being able to buy a PC and have the option of never touching a Microsoft product at all? (Yeah, I know there are Linux laptops already -- I just don't know anyone who actually uses them.)

You know who probably hates this development? Mozilla. That company's Firefox browser has been edging up in popularity against Explorer since it was launched. Right now, nearly 23% of internet users prefer Firefox. A silver-lining to Firefox's cloud is the fact that the deal could prompt Sony's competitors to strike similar deals, but with Firefox instead of Chrome.

Whatever happens, it looks more and more like the competitors to Explorer are really starting to gain serious traction, and IE's days could be numbered.
