Net Applications noted that Chrome “jumped from zero to 0.4% during the hour it was released yesterday. Nine hours later, Chrome accounted for 1% of the browsers used to visit the 40,000 or so sites that the company monitors for clients”, according to the report.
So with 1% of the market, Chrome has already overtaken Opera, which Net Applications measured with a 0.74% share at the end of August.
But Chrome still has a little bit to go if it wants to overtake Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, which held a 72.2% share of the browser market last month, said Net Applications earlier this week, while Mozilla’s Firefox and Apple’s Safari owned 19.2% and 6.4%, respectively, according to the report.
