NetApplications indicates Chrome is losing ground?

Published 19 September 08 09:59 AM | rodtrent

Not that it had much ground to start with, but NetApplications has been tracking Google’s Chrome.  From their numbers, though, I don’t see much of a drop-off.  Except I do see that Safari gained some ground – which to me indicates that NetApplications isn’t tracking Chrome as well as they could since Chrome is misinterpreted as Safari sometimes, since its built on Safari code.

Here’s what NetApplications had to say in a recent newsletter:

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 an amazing start, reaching over 1% market share within the first 24 hours of its launch, the early adopters are fading. The trend line for Chrome shows it slowly losing market 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 market 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 But, since Chrome doesn't yet work on Mac OS, that me be the reason why Safari is immune so far.
