Google Chrome Browser Share 72.9% In May 2009

by Chrome Blog on June 4, 2009

I was checking the log files of our blog for the month of May, 2009, and i was a bit amused to see that almost 73% of the visitors on our site are actually using Google Chrome. This is very significant as compared to other months.

Google Chrome Users Increases In May

In the previous months that no. was significantly lower. In April 2009, we got around 61% visitors on our blog using Google Chrome. So a jump of around 12% in May, which aint bad haan??

Ofcourse, these figures are only pertaining to and restricted to our website only which is dedicated and aimed at Google Chrome and resources on it, so users who would come to our website are more or less likely to be using Google Chrome and thus a greater share.

Reason For Increase In No. of Chrome Users

The primary reason according to me for the increase is the initial support for extension in Google Chrome, and release of some basic plugins/extensions for it such as the  Googlepedia Extension, CustomNewTab and more. Users have certainly liked such extensions. One more thing is perhaps the overall stability that has become a lot more constant that it was earlier. Many surfers also liked the speed of Google Chrome and the title of “The Fastest Browser” sits on it pretty nicely.

I looked at the log files and stats of some of my other websites as well (non google chrome oriented), and there also i saw a rise of about 2-3% from April to May, 2009. I am pretty sure when some 3rd party log companies release their stats for May for the Browser Share Market, google chrome would be making a big improvement overall.

So guys, let us know what you think of this and share you thoughts with us. If you own a website or blog then do post your browser share stats for the month of May 2009. It would help to make a better assessment and should be a lot of fun..

So you are surprised that a site about Chrome gets a lot of hits from people using Chrome? On my own site I show Google Chrome (2.4%) as the fourth most common browser behind Opera (3.1%), Firefox (29.9%) and IE (59%).

Do admit I am impressed that Chrome almost has as many users as Opera does. But Chrome seriously needs to get some features if it intends to compete with the big 2.

Carbonise – where did i say i was surprised. I have mentioned that on a site dedicated to Chrome i expect it to be high, and its higher than last month. Just read out the whole thing. I have some other sites as well and i saw a steady increase in those which is mentioned above.

Amused or surprised. Either way if you run a site dedicated to a particular web browser you are going to get most hits from people using that web browser.

I’d say the main reasons for more people trying Chrome is possibly the fact Google is the most popular search engine and they keep posting about it on the Google site.

I’d say that possibly once Chrome hits version 4 or gets a better selection of extensions/plugins then it might surpass Opera.

It’s still in dire need of more options though. I like to be able to turn cookies off except for a white list of domains. That and there are a few rendering hiccups in WebKit that still need to be ironed out.

I am developing a website and I just started using google chrome, and I noticed that it was not handling links made with CSS style sheets that had a lot of padding around them very well.
.biglink {
font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 14px;
color: #ffffff;
background-color: #3D587D;
border-top-style: ridge;
border-right-style: inset;
border-bottom-style: solid;
border-left-style: outset;
white-space: nowrap;
margin: 0px;
padding: 10px;
height: 24px;
border-top-color: #FFFFFF;
border-right-color: #333333;
border-bottom-color: #666666;
border-left-color: #333333;
border-top-width: 4px;
border-right-width: 4px;
border-bottom-width: 2px;
border-left-width: 4px;

When I have a link the uses the above class it is totally distorted.
