  4. Hello,
    How exactly are Safari users switching to Chrome when Chrome is not even available for Mac OS X? That is absolutely no way you can make that conclusion.
    Thank you

  5. It’s true what has been said above, that the majority of people believe that the only way of getting onto the internet is by clicking the big blue icon!

    I liked Chrome at first, as it has a slightly larger viewing area than Mozilla, but removed Chrome because of the constant cruching of my hardrive…are Google collecting ALL my data? 😉

  7. Shame it doesn’t work on macs – I wonder when/if it will be available? Will be interesting to see if it stands the test of time.

  9. I think Chrome will gain a better share of the market as time goes on since Google will be able to promote it among their marketing programs.

  11. As shown on the link the popularity of this question is quite high. I wonder why firefox can be so much better, when it’s made by google, yet internet explorer is by the company that makes the windows system?
