For comparison, here are the stats for The Noisy Channel, based on the last 30 days (note that stats don’t reflects users reading the blog through RSS readers):
- Firefox: 58.4%
- Internet Explorer: 19.2%
- Safari: 9.9%
- Chrome: 6.8%
- Mobile (assorted): 3.0%
- Opera: 1.6%
- Mozilla 1.x: 1.1%
- Konqueror: 0.1%
Not quite the same mix as Shankland is seeing at CNET, but Chrome’s share is respectable.
Note: the Chrome market share may be slightly skewed by my using Chrome to post, since I’ve found it handles my WordPress web client better than Firefox. I still am faithful to Firefox for everything else. As someone posted recently, no Adblock = no Chrome.
Even so, I’m sure that doesn’t account for more than 1% of traffic. A noticable minority of Noisy Channel readers are giving Chrome a chance.
