  1. I dunno folks. I beg to differ on the overall usage stats. Opera has a far larger share than is represented in those stats.

    Chrome although offering a few cool toys, hasn’t really done anything that isn’t already being done at least as well or better by other browsers.
    Memory usage for Chrome compared to Opera 9.52 was a bit slimmer, but when compared side by side in page load times, Chrome fails badly.

    Rendering is still pretty buggy. More research, more developement is needed before I worry about making my site compatible with what looks to be a “fly-by-night” offering. (It took months and and my site still isn’t 100% x-browser compliant between IE, FF and Opera. And nevermind validating my pages. They weren’t designed that way hahahahaha)

    Google seems to be biting off way more than hey can chew as of late.

  2. Please could you show some stat’s about the use of Chrome in Spain?

    I think that the rate is and was more than the rates in UK and US (also Globaly).

    It could be interesting for all because Spain now is the most receptive country talking about new software like this Google Browser.

  3. The user base

    It is faster but lacks some functionality: Is it not possible to edit pages in Google Groups, there are lack of tools and addons, even the Google Toolbar is not available for Chrome.

    You have saw an increase in usage of people just testing, prety soon they will be bored and back to the old FF, it seems that IE users are not interested so far.

  4. There have been issues over the past couple of weeks which may have impacted on confidence in Google Chrome amongst Aol users who maintain a presense on their free webspace provided by Aol hometown uk.
    The blacklisting of Hometown caused outrage and mistrust of Google amongst the vast majority of people who keep a clean, innocent website there.
    This could well have led to a mistrust of browsers that attempt to classify how “safe” a website is. The US seems to register a fairly massive swing from FF to IE. The “tarring all with the same brush” attack on Hometown by google will not sit well with Aol users and the many visitors to their sites who know the pages they visit are safe.
    It seems the blacklisting has been removed, but the reason behind the whole event has turned around and splashed a large dish of irony Google’s way.

  5. Sp2 needed πŸ™

    I’ll stay with Mozilla Firebird, good old fast browser with some good plugins still working and 0,00001% of people using it. Noone creates spyware specially for this uncontinued browser so I don’t need SP2, I barely use Spybot or Ad Aware. πŸ™‚

  6. Thanks for keeping us updated on the Chrome stats………..I haven’t tried Chrome as yet …………..its interesting to read the many comments of people presently using Chrome.

  7. I have tried the Chrome and it looks good.

    Google, has been providing a clean and efficient interfaces,
    so with chrome I think we gone a have the same.

    I had a visitor on my statcounter project, from chrome,
    That’s not bad.
    It’s a start.

  8. Chrome is a good browser, but I don’t like it blue… I could not seem to find the part to change the skin color. Perhaps that feature is not done yet?

    Also, I noticed that Chrome was eating up more than 100+MB of space in the windows temporary folder. And it is NOT the temporary internet files. FF was just using 35MB and Opera just 15MB. IE, I only use it to test my sites… haha.

    And Chrome seems to lag a bit during page displays.

    So I dumbed Chrome. Sorry… I am still with FF and Opera. Maybe until Chrome releases a full and kick ass version. It has potential but right now, in my book, it’s still behind.

  9. The thing is most common people does not take their time or not interested in downloading or installing or even knowing about these things. They simply use the preinstalled ie6.

  10. Thanks. As an ASP.Net web developer, this data is important to me. It’s a question of having to re-code or not and that entirely depends on how much market share chrome has. Certainly it does not work 100% with the websites that i have worked on.

    I made my own review of chrome a few days after it was released from an ASP.Net developer’s perspective. Not exhaustive but it reveals initial problems developers like me would encounter. You can read it here http://alainrivas.blogspot.com/2008/09/aspnet-developers-assesment-on-chromes.html

  11. If others who downloaded Google Chrome got annoyed at the lack of adblocking like me and installed Privoxy, then StatCounter is underreporting the number of Chrome users since Privoxy blocks StatCounter by default.

  12. As expected, most people who tried Chrome reverted soon after to their normal browsers. But gaining above 1 percent market share right away is a huge leap for Chrome as well. 1% market share isn’t a small number.
