Chrome Grabs 1% in One Day!

According to research conducted by us here at StatCounter, Google’s new browser, Chrome, has taken 1% of the global browser market within a day of launch.

Google’s unusual step of publicising the Chrome browser on its notoriously clutter-free homepage is an indication of the plans that Google has for this browser…

“This is a phenomenal performance,” commented Aodhan Cullen, “this is war on Microsoft but the big loser could be Firefox.”

While Google may have the Internet Explorer market share in its sights, the fact that many Firefox users are more “mobile” as far as browser use is concerned, may impact on the current Firefox market share.

Note: The StatCounter analysis was conducted today, Wednesday, 03 September 2008, and was based on a sample of 18.5 million page views globally. The analysis identified that Internet Explorer holds 70% of the global browser market followed by Firefox with 22%.

  6. The way Google Chrome was introduced was excellent and that was innovative idea to explain the features in a comic way .. I loved it. As a basic user I (of course not in office) didn’t find much reasons to leave FF which is more handy. As a technical users (In Office) features like JavaSript Runtime (V8), per process for a tab, security enhancements, pop optimization, ect where excellent idea.

    But these are only missing features in FF, if they update accordingly in next version of FF then no need of Chrome ?

  11. Wow…I have barely even heard about it and it already has 1%…looks like I will need to get my head out of my butt after all.

  12. Well, that didn’t take long. Google has revised their EULA to remove the odious language. I’m sure it was just a “mistake”

  15. Some reporting agencies have stated it was over 2% in the first day. Still whether 1%, 2%, 2.79% – it doesn’t matter. Chrome is Google’s and we know everyone (almost everyone) loves anything Google.

    I think the tabs feature is a great selling point. Incognito feature? Not anything new really.

    Yesterday, I was called at home to be interviewed on my opinions about Google Chrome by our local NEWS 6. For what it was worth, I went with it.
    I gave my personal view that I believe Chrome is definitely IN.

    I gave StatCounter a plug and Mr. Cullen, and referred them to stay updated by visiting StatCounter. She told me she would.

    Thanks for the hard numbers and stats StatCounter.
