Google Chrome hit a pretty major landmark over the last week, where they released the 50th release of the popular desktop browser. To mark the occasion, Google has released some very interesting statistics around the browser and how it has made such a difference to the lives of the people using it. Fair play to Google for admitting that the Chrome is far from a perfect product just yet, with plenty of work still to be done, especially when it comes to the mobile platform.
However, the post definitely makes for an interesting read if you have a thing for numbers and they are pretty sweet:
- Google Chrome is used by a billion people on mobile each month, which makes it one of the most popular mobile browsers out there.
- Users on Chrome load 771 billion pages a month, that’s quite a fair bit.
- Thanks to a good Auto-complete, Chrome saves its users a total of more than 500 billion characters from typing.
- Chrome historically has saved users almost 2million GB of data, thanks to its inbuilt data saving feature.
- More than 3.6 billion web pages are automatically translated in a month so that you can read reports filed in languages that are alien to you easily.
- Chrome claims to have automatically filled over 9.1billion forms and passwords.
- Google has also stated that thanks to its inbuilt security features, Chrome has protected its users over 145million times from malicious attacks.
- There is also fat reward for helping Google fix security bugs with over $2.5million paid out in incentive.
The stats show that Google not only is capable of making a good product, but also can market it well and above all build a nice community around it. Have you been using Google Chrome as your go to browser too?
