Just as the Opera browser turned 10 yesterday — in terms of versions, that is — Google’s Chrome browser is one year old today. I can’t think of a browser that has generated a more polar view of opinions. Some love it for its speed and simplicity, while others find it too basic. We must have more of the former camp here than the latter because 7.23% of our page views in the last six months were in the Chrome browser. According to The Technologizer, Chrome only holds 2.9% of the overall browser market, so our audience appreciates the simple speediness of Chrome more than your average web user. As a point of reference, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari were used more than Chrome here, with “shares” of 44.61%, 29.05% and 14.43%, respectively. Opera rounds out the major browser usage for our site, holding at 2.44% or nearly one-third that of Google’s Chrome browser. I think the new Opera Turbo feature will help, but I’ll have to take another look in a few months to be sure.
