It's only been less than a week and a large percentage of internet folks are using the new Google Chrome Browser. (As for me, I haven't had time to give it a spin yet, but moving on...) Over at Search Engine Land, an extremely large early adopter crowd has surfaced. Barry has compiled all of the stats of the Google Analytics users and Chrome is emerging in an impressive third place position (on average).

Of the three sites sampled in the Search Engine Land post, 6.42% of site visitors are using Chrome. Barry solicits statistical feedback on Sphinn and a number of users are also seeing substantial Chrome representation. Matt Cutts, for example, finds that a whopping 19.44% of his visitors are using Google Chrome.

Here's the Search Engine Roundtable representation:

The average percentage of Chrome users among the Sphinn readership for September 3rd is approximately 3.87%. This includes a tally of 17 different responses in the Sphinn thread and includes some sites that had not reported any Chrome usage.

Forum discussion continues at Sphinn.

Chrome is set to make a new revolution - not far from beating Firefox & IE

If Chrome doesn't get extensions it won't succeed with the webdev crew. It would be interesting if it manages an uptake with regular people - it could happen, after all it is on the G home page. I do wonder if MS wouldn't breath a sigh of relief if they weren't the #1 browser? Its not like they sell IE as a standalone product ...

To be honest with the security holes that chrome has it is quite worrying that chrome is so popular. Google do not seem to be in a hurry to release the version of chrome that is in SVN that has resolved these security holes.

Well, it has been only 6 days and chrome sat on the third rank. this is amazing!
