Net Applications’ “Global Internet Usage Market Share” is tracking Google Chrome by the hour, as can be seen here: Chrome Marketshare by the Hour
While Chrome got off to a very good start, reaching over 1% share within the first 24 hours of its launch, the early adopters are fading markedly. The trend line for Chrome shows it slowly losing share day by day. Now, only in the middle of the night (for the US) does Chrome peak its above 1%.
Initially, Chrome claimed all of its share at the expense of Microsoft Internet Explorer. However, as of last week, the Chrome share was coming fairly evenly from all the other major browsers except for Safari. (Chrome does not yet work natively on Mac OS X.)
