is privacy really a selling point for chrome? i dont think the public link google with really good privacy. a big chunk of the public dont go looking for a browser anyway. they probably dont even know the names of the leading makers. they just use the easiest thing to hand.
google has got a long reach, and can put chrome in front of a lot of eyes, just like microsoft did with windows. thats the main reason why the numbers are going up.
if opera had the same clout as google, then their numbers would be going up too.
