A quick note here about the usage of Chrome by visitors to Web sites from which I have access to data. I notice that Chrome accounts now for between 0.5% and 2% of visits. On some large Web sites (150,000 to 2,000,000 visits a month), the percentage is around 0.5%. If I look at that ratio during the last week, I see a small increase in all sites. The 2% ratio is on my own site; my audience seems to be more on the Internet savvy side if I consider the large proportion of FireFox (46%) users compare to large public sites (15%), if that is any indication. I was expecting that more visitors would be coming to my site using Chrome by this time.
Those ratios will certainly go up by Christmas, but it seems that there was not a Gold Rush here. Habits are hard to change, and I must say that Chrome didn’t “wow” me enough to make it my by default browser (IE is still what I use most often).
What about you? What have you noticed in your stats?
