Chrome users start to decline

By Justin Mann on September 24, 2008, 12:15 PM
Chrome's initial user explosion had a lot to do with hype and newness. Or, at least, that's what you can infer as their explosive growth is now waning and users are returning to other browsers. Sites that track browsers noticed that in some areas Chrome swelled over 1% a mere day after release, an impressive feat.

That later stabled to a bit under 1%, and now has dipped down to 0.77%, almost the lowest since the browser was released. Some of the loss is being attributed to those who just wanted to test drive Chrome and are heading back to their regular browsers. More could be attributed to those who gave Chrome an honest try, but are waiting for additional functionality or bug fixing before they continue using it.

Google is already great at getting the word out for their software, so their primary goal now should be to make the browser suitable for everyday use.

I'm running it in Win2K now, first just because I was pissed it was not possible to install it so therefore I wanted to get it running but not really to use itHowever I've grown quite accustomed to it, it's interface is very modern yet sleek and stylish unlike most other "modern" softwares like Nero taking up more space then your normal CD-R disc...I also really like some of the features it offers, like the address bar search thing which helps you complete addresses even if you have never visited them before etc...I really hope some of these ideas are included into Opera, which is my preffered browser of choice...
