Google Chrome

A new survey is showing that Google’s Chrome browser is moving to third place in the browser standings.

Granted, the percentage for Chrome is nowhere near Internet Explorer, but I still think this is important.

The most important lesson is: You should code your websites to HTML standards as opposed to targeting a single browser’s quirks (like IE 6.0).

It’s a mistake to dismiss Google Chrome because it doesn’t have a lot of market share at the moment. Firefox likewise didn’t have a lot of market share, but it’s at about 25% right now. Who in their right mind would turn away 1 out of 4 of their customers?

But I think Google can increase its market share much more rapidly. For one thing, they can promote Chrome on their websites, like they’re doing on Youtube now. The number one video site on the Internet telling people to download Chrome gives it instant credibility.

In addition, Google can promote Chrome outside the digital sphere, as they are doing on the busses of certain cities currently. If Google can make google a household word, Chrome’s not too far behind.
