Google ended the day valued at $247.56 billion, slightly below Microsoft who closed at $248.8 billion.
Both combined still remain below the somewhat bloated valuation of Apple, at $620 billion, the world's largest public company.
Google has seen its shares soar this year, up 35 percent since July, alone. Microsoft has also seen gains, about 11 percent for the year.
