that is absolutely bizarre, there must be something else going on. I don't know any consumer that's even heard of chrome, so the gains on chrome must be as the result of phone sales.
And that means the numbers might be a bit out of whack with what they seem to be, i.e. I suspect this is % of installed devices, not a measure of actual browser useage. (I didn't see this specifically on the site).
For example, we've got three blackberries, an iphone, an ipad, 2 laptops, and 3 desktops in our house. By browser, that's 2 safari's, 3 of whatever RIM uses, and 5 firefox. But by useage, it's got to be like 99% firefox and 1% safari (for the once a week I browse the internet on the ipad). The blackberries and iphones, we never surf the internet.
But perhaps I'm wrong - do people actually see 10-15% of visitors using chrome?
