Google’s first product that has been advertised on TV in the UK, Google Chrome, has become more popular than Firefox. Seems like advertising works!
Yes, that’s right. Chrome is now the second most used web browser in the UK after having overtaken Firefox. That is, according to StatCounter. Being only just ahead of Firefox, Chrome currently possesses 22 percent of UK users. Internet Explorer, however, still has more market share than both of them combined, lying at 45 percent.
Going by what the man behind Chrome has to say, the key to browser success is speed.
Speed is a fundamental part of it, but it’s also about the minimal design and the way it handles security. If you as a user try to load a webpage and it feels snappy, it’s really hard to go back [to another browser]. It has shown that people spend more time interacting with the web. – Lars Bak, Google engineer responsible for Chrome
