Chrome market share blooms on day two

By Justin Mann on
Google Chrome has certainly made a powerful first impression. Though the overall picture painted has been one of incompleteness, it has apparently proved interesting enough for many to try it out. So many, in fact, that according to some statistics gatherers it is already beating Opera in terms of numbers, taking in a little over 2.6% market share.

Other trackers disagree with those numbers, putting the amount of Chrome users a little under 1.5%. Others don't even have data available yet.

These are definitely skewed perspectives. The browser is only a few days old, so many people may just be test driving it and don't plan on keeping it. Further, that's only two datasets. Other sites may differ. It definitely shows that Google's advertising methods, which include word-of-mouth, are working to their advantage. What I'd really like to see is download figures straight from Google which I'm sure they are capable of providing.
