  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
