    You people are aware that Chrome is built on Apple’s open source WebKit HTML rendering engine, the same one used in Safari, right? Sites that have already been written with Safari compatibility in mind should work fine in Chrome. Using Safari 4 with the current WebKit actually scores 100/100 on the Acid3.

  2. Hey Kenneth,

    You should look at IE8 Beta 2. You’d be surprised how far microsoft has come. This is not the IE of old…Give it a whirl. It’s not FF or Chrome, but it ain’t half bad.

  3. @Jay While this may be true. Once Chrome gets more market share you may need to have your site display properly in Chrome. I know this is a current struggle for designers getting the page to load correctly in IE, FF, Opera and Safari.

  4. Tried Chrome, dumped it. It displays my website poorly. Who’s got the time to futzing with software? There’s real WORK to be done. Bye.

  5. Why is that even though the number of page views is huge (on the order of 10^8), the fluctuations in IE’s are on the order of several percent? (Between 0.6315 and 0.6859.)

    That fluctuation just seems way too large for so many page views … especially since I do not expect the majority of users changing their browsers.

  6. I have noticed that with the upgrade to Firefox 3, my xanga no longer tracks those hits. This troubles me greatly. Can anyone tell me if there is a stat counter fix to ensure that the hit count on my page is accurate?

    Thanks.

  7. The total change idea is a good one. It should be total change since Chrome was released.

    I expect Chrome to do better among nerdy-types after a few updates. I’ve had it freeze up a few times, but it’s been mostly reliable. Most regular people don’t know or care how their browser handles things. Chrome is a good addition to the suite of software that Google can use for their over-the-network OS (to go along with Google Docs, Gmail, Google Earth, Google Notebook, and all their other stuff).

  8. Was expecting it to grow much faster than that. Might take a while to achieve web browser domination than I thought. Good Luck Google.

  9. I use FF and IE, and now I am using Chrome 50% of the time. I like it and expect it to improve even more. When will IE start adding something useful to the tab page like Chrome has done? It is such a time-saver.

    IE seems to be going in the opposite direction. They are focusing on eliminating your search history rather than optimizing your “go to” list.

  10. I wonder what the German stats look like … I guess FF has a much bigger market share. In the first days of chrome mainly webmasters and bloggers used chrome in order to see if their sites work in chrome too.

  11. Interesting. I see way too many negative stats for FF and Safari. Why are they losing users?

    IE seems pretty stable. Could be the built-in user base they get from WIN OS. Since to use FF or any of these other browsers you have to go get the download. I know lots of people use IE because its there and they don’t care they are not using FF or Safari or Chrome. Lots of businesses I have worked in the past use Netscape. I think our local GOV ofcs use Netscape or at least did use it last time I went online in a local gov ofc.
