Makes sense to me. A few months ago I started to use the Google Chrome browser out of curiosity just to see how different & better it is compared to what I was always using (firefox). It took some getting use to but I find the Google Chrome browser to be faster than FireFox.

+ FireFox always crashes on me. Google Chrome for the win!

Explorer has died many years ago to me at least for it crashes far to often and the features of the browser just suck as it hasn't changed much over the years. As for Firefox goes it was a great browser when it came out but the memory usage on Firefox became unbelievable. It wasn't able to crunch the numbers down. now when i use chrome as a browser its a much smaller strain on my ecu using less cahe memory ! and a much smoother browser overall!

I think those numbers sound about right. I think that is pretty good news for the Chromebook considering that it hasn't been out very long.

That's good. I have not been using internet explorer ever since I downloaded Chrome when it came out. I don't even use firefox as well. There are a few glitches with chrome lately but still it's my main browser.

There isn't really a bad choice between the modern browsers. The biggest thing holding back the web is the vast number of corporates still on IE6 and 7.

I use Chrome all the time and only keep the others around for clients' testing. If there are many like me, the non-Chrome metrics are misleading.
