Google released another update to its open source Chrome browser recently, and there have been some noticeable speed improvements, along with several fixes for plug-ins - namely having to do with YouTube videos and PDFs. Some tests even indicate the JavaScript performance is nearly 40 percent faster than when it was first released.  While these improvements are all fine and dandy, is anyone using Chrome yet? And if so, how many?

While we only know for certain how many WebsiteMagazine.com visitors are using Chrome, we know for certain that the percentage for the month of October (2008) is 2.73%. Internet Explorer leads the way for us with 46%, followed closely (and this surprised even me) by Firefox at 44% and then Safari with 4.71% market share.

If you know your website's current Google Chrome market share, please post a comment below and share with it other Website Magazine readers. It would be interesting to see how the market share of Chrome varies by industry.

hi-

I tried to use Chrome and I was not impressed.  I uninstalled it.  They need to work on it some more

Of visits:

IE  84%

In October:

Firefox 13%

Safari 2%

Opera 0.56%

Chrome 0.28%

Firefox, Safari and Opera visitors made more page views, Chrome less - 0.18% (but so small I'm sure it wouldn't be statistically significant)

Of IE page views, still about 20% using IE6; about 1% using IE8

I installed Chrome, tried it for 2 days and uninstalled it. I expected more from Google.

No Chrome listed.

I use Chrome on occasion to listen to streaming radio media I can't tune into on my radio. I love it. It is little to no drain on my virtual memory and I love the ability to open new windows and surf or blog while I listen. That is definitely not so when I use IE. FF seems to slow down too when I do this.

I hope G makes greater strides in the market but it looks slow coming. I did a quick interview re: Chrome Release for our local Channel 6 News back in September and they were at about 2% market share then. What's up with that Chrome?
