“Two weeks after the launch of Chrome, Google Inc.’s browser has stolen market share from every competitor except Apple Inc.’s Safari,” Gregg Keizer reports for Computerworld.
“At the end of its second week, Chrome accounted for 0.85% of the browsers that visited the 40,000 sites monitored by Net Applications Inc., an increase from the 0.67% the week before,” Keizer reports.
“Chrome’s share came at the expense of Microsoft Corp.’s Internet Explorer, Mozilla Corp.’s Firefox, Opera Software ASA’s Opera and even AOL LLC’s Netscape, all of which have watched their browser share drop in the past two weeks. Only Safari escaped Chrome’s impact; Apple’s browser, in fact, has gained nearly 0.7 percentage points during the past 14 days,” Keizer reports.
“Vince Vizzaccaro, Net Applications’ executive vice president of marketing, has an idea why. ‘[Chrome] isn’t available on Mac OS X yet,’ he said… And Chrome’s numbers may be soft, Vizzaccaro added, noting that Net Applications’ newest data pegged the browser’s trend line as slightly downward.”
