'[OT] Is Google Chrome getting popular?'

I have a small web site and just made a little statistic of used browsers. I
was so surprised about Google Chrome... It is new but even then has almost
the same popularity as Opera - maybe the stats are not so accurate as this
is only a small web site...

Int Explorer    25625    52.4 %
Firefox         19451    39.8 %
Opera            1784     3.6 %
Google Chrome    1490     3 %
Safari            215     0.4 %
Mozilla           155     0.3 %

In case you are wondering of the OS as well:

Windows     44939    92 %
Linux        3442     7 %
Macintosh     287     0.5 %
Unknown       114     0.2 %
Symbian OS     31     0 %

Depends on your visitor profile.

Well I'm using it. Has several advantages over IE/Firefox IMO, though
unfortunately also still a few faults.

A slight hijacking of this thread.

That confirms what I was saying to Xiaofan about Linux beating out Mac
OS X on the developer desktops.

If you had a website that catered to Photoshop users, I expect Mac
percentages would be higher, as well as Safari.

Cheerful regards,

And it looks like Windows 7 will allow you to throw away IE, and use your
most favourite browser as the default ...

I have Chrome installed and I must admit that now, its very
stable and fast! Nothing compared with the first releases.
It updates alone in the background so it is very transparent
for most users that don't want to deal with such annoying
task (upgrading your browser).  Firefox does the same but if
the browser is open it will ask you to restart it... if you
close it and then open it, it will also install
automatically.  Chrome does the same but without any message.

Chrome is good, it really is... but I admit that my heart is
more close to firefox because they where the ones that
really took the flag after Netscape fall.  I've used Opera,
and firefox took many ideas from it, but Opera didn't catch
the audience as firefox... may be because its not open source?


And about the IE removal under Windows, I read this is due
to an European Comission claiming such a feature...

I love many of the concepts behind chrome (a separate process for each
tab, a faster javascript engine, the 'start' page of most frequently
visited sites) - but until it has image blocking and a plugin like
flashblock for firefox, I'm not switching.  I'm too used to not having
to view animated ads while I browse.  I don't need the full
functionality of adblock, just the ability to block images from given
domains, and to block all flash content until I click a "play" button
(except for those sites I specifically whitelist to have flash on all
the time)

Of course, maybe these things exist for Chrome now, it's been awhile
since I've tried it...

Rather than complaining I figured I at least ought to find out whether
this functionality exists or not.

Some of this functionality (adblock, for instance) can be implemented
using bookmarklets - which are bookmarks that run javascript programs
on the currently viewed webpage:

http://blogote.com/2008/featured-article/google-chrome-with-firefox-addon.html

But Chrome does not yet have plugins.  Sounds like May/June is when
developers should start seeing Chrom Plugin information:
www.chromeplugins.org/extensions/google-chrome-to-have-extensionsplugins-by-may-2009/
at which point we should see a lot of action in porting Firefox's
most popular features and plugins over to Chrome.

Google's business model relies on advertising, though, so I'm really
curious to see how they approach this - Firefox has always been the
browser for those who avoid advertisements.

That's nothing. What's more surprising is that the majority of the

Why should it be surprising that the main population uses something that is
under their noses.

IE doesn't exactly advertise other browsers and most 'ordinary' aren't
usually bothered to look for another UNLESS there is a problem/fault

Consquently with the majority using IE (and on a mac SAFARI) they just
assume that THAT is the internet.

Firefox / Chrome etc are all well and good but until windows ships with an
option saying :-

'This is your first time running on this pc which browser would you like to
try
Firefox
Opera
Safari
Google Chrome

Or
Internet Explorer'

I can't ever seeing it change.

Just my 2p worth

Exactly! That's why OEM products are so powerful (in terms of marketing).
Like pre installed operating systems, or an antivurs, or a DVD burning
software etc etc etc.

As others mentioned, this all depends on the visitor profile. But it
roughly says that Chrome usage can be ignored. I have it installed
but seldom use it. I still uses Firefox and IE7 more often
at home under Windows, Firefox under Linux. At work, only IE 6 works.
Firefox does not work with many of our applications.

To me Chrome has no much advantages. It kinds of steam some
ideas from Opera and Firefox. Its compatibility is much worse than
IE 7 and Firefox.

I am more talking about the corporate world. I've seen Linux being used
as a test machine but not the main OS used. I've seen people use
Mac OS X as the main OS.

Yes I agree it will all depend on the user profile.

I have never tested Chrome only tried once or twice. The only reason I do
not use is that there are no extensions / addons to that anything close to
FF. But one thing is for sure: We have a huge list of URLs in an internal
web site and that is opened way faster in Chrome _and_ in Safari than on IE
or FF. I wish they could put all good things into one product.

Ignored from what perspective? From the perspective of building a website
you're happy to ignore 3% of people?

Many sites ignore Firefox (30-40%) thus ignore much more than 3% user. So
it is not too bad just to ignore 3% of users of Google Chrome. But of course
this depends on the sites.

Anyway, probably "ignored" is wrong to use. I meant to say that the
Chrome is still not popular.

yeah I'd say the only people i know that use it consistently are my friends
that are into computers a lot and love google and its prodcuts so gave them
a shot. The complaint among all of them(me included) is the lack of plugins
available  If it becomes compatible with plugins already available for
firefox(particularly ubiquity) it could draw some more interest. It's pretty
fast -- just not configurable at all
