Google's marketing made people who did not know what a browser was realise they had a choice
I think it's entirely possible that many of those chrome users still don't know what a browser is. They think they're using a supercharged version of google. And, after all, google = the internet.
Chrome itself reinforces the misunderstanding with features like pre-loading in searches.* Your average user could be forgiven for thinking they've simply moved to a fancier version of the search engine.
* Does anyone know if this applies to the New Improved image search as well? I'd test it ... if only I could think of any picture anywhere on my site that would reliably come up #1 in an image search.
