Google Chrome Nugget

Google ChromeI'm a big fan of almost all things Google, although their new browser, Google Chrome, has yet to impress me enough to make the switch from Firefox. There appear to be plenty of Chrome converts here on the NNN blog, however. Market Share has been tracking Chrome usage worldwide: on Sunday, Chrome's usage peaked at 1.42% of the world's HTTP requests. On the NEI blog yesterday? 4% of visitors viewed the site in Chrome. Who knew Notes readers were such early adopters?

On a somewhat-related note: Happy 10th Anniversary, Google. Whenever you were born.

I'd like to think that it's because we nuclear fans are a little more "in the know" about new technology in general (a nicer way to say 'geekier'). Personally, I thought that comic was really interesting albeit a little over my head. However, Chrome has a long way to go in terms of features before it can really make a difference. A cleaner functionality for atom feeds would be nice.

Sorry, I just couldn't resist the nuclear pun.

I do agree that the Nuclear community skews toward a techy audience, but I think Chrome is something that actually stretches past that niche a tad. Google, the company having most powerful search and Cloud services, is already huge and that stretches to a mainstream audience of some kind.

For me, I can't leave the functionality of Firefox; additionally, Google has my search history, my mail, my Domain, my blog, my home locations, etc., but I am not giving them my browser.
