  1. Chrome doesn’t work well with the StatCounter link. Even can’t be used to log on to the StatCounter site.

    Don’t know why the problem, but, I prefer Internet Explorer.

  2. I like Chrome. Not surprised at the stats though. The masses are going to continue using what is already installed on their computer. The techies are going to try Chrome but most are going to stick with FF and their add-ons. Eventually Chrome will take over more, but it’s going to be very difficult to unseat IE in the Windows world.

  3. Opportunity missed by Google Chrome.

    I’m surprised they haven’t pushed it more. They put it on the Google page briefly, then pulled it… and I barely noticed the small static ad on the main search page. Wow, huge opportunity missed.

    They could have put a beautiful flash banner on google.com – complete break of style, etc (would cause uproar? but gets attention!), but if you want to launch a new browser, you need to advertise it heavily — and Google have that ability more than anyone – for free, no less. So what are they doing?

    As a regular marketer/promoter of websites and retail products, I’m confused. As a web programmer, I’ll seriously test out my websites for compatibility with IE 6&7, FF, Opera and Safari. If I find a bug specifically with Chrome, at 1%, I won’t break myself to find and fix it.

  4. I would put on the 1 place FF. It is speedy and safe. 2 place Opera with lust update were they fix downloading crash ))). IE I would put on the last place, especially 7. Very stupid and slowly in use.

  5. As long as Chrome keeps to web standards then my websites should work with it. I wont be using it however. Instead if i want to see what my website looks like in different browsers then i will use a website that does this for me.

  6. Still a big hill to climb for Google to start slicing into that market share. I don’t expect to see real numbers for at least 2 to 3 years with the younger demographic use Chrome more.

  7. For a browser that has just started and still in beta the results are great for Google, Opera has been years inthe market and commands less users apparently.

  8. Google couldn’t ask for a better start, gaining a 1.11% share in the first day itself. That speaks volumes of the kind of name they have worldwide. Quite a bit of damage seems to have been done on Firefox. I find it surprising that Chrome has a greater share in the UK than the US.

  9. I would say, a good start, even though more was expected from google. Expectations were high, especially after recent release of FF 3.x. Comparisons between browsers are being posted in many blogs.
    We need more Google.

  10. Well, i tested it myself and then moved to the old browser. IE, dont ask me why, i always go back to IE, my mouse move to that shourtcut alone!

    Chrome still need more work, i think they missed some managerial issues, they must at least included the google toolbar, page rank issues, they maybe need to contact alexa to creat a toolbar working with chrome, i know alot wont use it because of such reasons.

    lets wait and see what changes will arise.

    Wish you will keep posting those out, so we keep watching the movement.

    Thanx
