Google Chrome Statistics, User Counts and Facts (2021)



Here are a few of the most interesting Google Chrome statistics and facts I was able to dig up including user counts. As always, be sure to check back in the future as I will be updating this post as new and updated stats become available.

Google Chrome Facts

What is Google Chrome?

In 2008, the search giant Google launched a fairly innocent-enough new web browser. At the time of launch, Google’s Chrome faced an uphill battle in a market dominated by longtime chart-toppers Internet Explorer, Firefox and Apple’s Safari along with a number of smaller and regional browsers. Chrome quickly proved it was up to the challenged and quickly passed each of its elder competitors in market share leaving it the default web browser for billions of people across the globe. In the past decade, the Chrome product has evolved into a full platform as the Chrome OS has become a very popular web-based computer operating system.
