    Cheers for Chrome!

    Didn’t Firefox have 400million like two years ago? And since their users supposedly keep growing despite their marketshare supposedly being on a decline, I’m guessing Chrome still has fewer users than Firefox.

    ahead of the pack. That ad on google.com on the top right helped it. Chromegrats!

      Google Pays companies and people to promote Chrome.  Firefox and Opera do not.  Chrome is a sucker , in more ways that one.

    According to http://www.internetworldstats.com/stats.htm on Dec31 2011 there were 2,267,233,742 Internet users & Chrome has 20% browser share 310 million seems a bit low maybe mobile use is growing faster than I thought.

    Creepy: Google monitors your keystrokes in Chrome! I have a feeling they are not using the information that they collect just to boast at conferences about how many words are typed in Chrome daily.

      Have you watched their I/O about Google Now?

      They said something like: we know when you wake up, we know when you go to work, we know when your airplane is late, etc.

      It was pretty creepy,

        I have not seen that video. It definitely sounds creepy! It’s amazing how much information companies can get away with collecting as long as they use it to develop useful, innovative features.

    Chrome is showing all signs of becoming a “popular” browser. My poor macbook. http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-57461768-263/google-chrome-crashing-new-macbook-airs/

      IE was most popular but it was never the best, same goes to chrome will be popular but best no.

      Off topic.

      Opera will be best.Sad for people leaving Opera saying that it is slow.
      Opera is bloody hard to crash and have lot of features now with extensions it is too good.

         Opera is slow.  I have tried to use Opera several times and each time had to uninstall because it was slow.  So is Firefox , but I use a Firefox Clone called Pale Moon that is a whole lot faster than Firefox.  Not buggy either.
