  1. Despite launching only two years ago, Google's Chrome now represents 9.98% of the total browser market share according to Net Applications' latest numbers. Further enforcing its lead on Safari and Opera, Chrome has nearly doubled in share since the start of 2010 when it held 5.22% of the market. By comparison, Safari has moved from 4.53% to 5.89% throughout the year, while Opera maintained a stagnant 2.xx% portion.

    I love chrome. I'm glad to see it growing.

    But I am very surprised that win7 is already on 1 in 5 computers. That's incredible

    I used Chrome for a while, but I still am sticking with Firefox on my main computer due to NoScript. It really alerted me to how stuff from other sites is running on an average web page.

    I tried Chrome and just couldn't get used to it. It's by no means a criticism of it, it's just I'm too used to Firefox.
  5. Love Chrome mainly because it's FAST. I would never have left Firefox if it wasn't for that.

    On another note, I don't believe anyone half-computer savvy would use IE as their main browser so what this stat really suggests to me is approx what percentage of computer\Windows owners actually have any meaningful knowledge of how to use it.

  7. agresive comercial. but opera still the best.
  8. I stay away from Chrome because of privacy issues.
  9. I love Chrome. I am very happy to see it's growing. Cheers!!!
  10. I don't like Chrome, because of lack of extensions and poor privacy. Also, Google is going to be another Microsoft and I don't like it all.
