How fast is Google’s web browser growing, though? At its developer conference in May, Google announced that Chrome had 70 million users. That means the browser has increased its user base by around 40% in six and a half months. That’s some serious growth.
In comparison, Firefox — currently the second most popular browser in the world — surpassed 1 billion downloads last year. There’s a big difference between users and downloads, but it gives a reference point for Chrome’s growth in the past two years.
