I guess they are counting prefetch calls too.
yup. this is utter BS and filthy propaganda.
yes, i too am seeing loads of chrome browser entries in my logs. around 90% of which from "google web preview" - their scraping tool to frame your webpages in their serps, which is disguised as chrome browser. combine that with googlebot and you have easily half of your bandwidth used up by this company.
i suggest you check your logs for user agent "google web preview". for it could turn out, that a good part of your beloved unique visitors may actually never have visited your site. but instead only happened to mouseover the serp entry on google - which produces a logfile entry on your server most of the time whereby messing up your user stats.
it's the same dirty practice they are doing with g+. inflating their numbers, deceiving the audience. and media too dumb to dig that agenda.
google = evil
