Visitation Stats Showing Gains for Chrome and Severe Share Loss for IE Amongst the Local Crowd

I know that I have a skewed readership (in more ways than one…). As my programmer said to me: “Wow. Go IE! Go far, far away!”

It appears that Local Geeks don’t use IE but I still find these browser stats telling none the less as I like to think of us the “vanguard”:

  1. Since installing Chrome, I now use it as my default browser and only use Firefox & subsequently IE if I have to (browser sniffing, incompatibility, testing & so on).

    I love that it is blazingly fast, I love the separate process per window and the memory management. I regularly have between 2-5 windows open with 5-25 tabs in each one and won’t close Chrome for over a week at a time and it just keeps on handing out the love.

    When people ask me about it, I find it hard not to rave about it to them and suggest they install it to see if they like it as well. What shocked me was that I have switched browsers nearly exclusively and without Chrome having the plugin architecture that many have come to love with Firefox.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your experiences with Chrome. Being on Safari (with a Firefox supplement) I have not been as motivated to try Chrome but after this recommendation, I will give it a go. Thanks again.
