Chrome is my primary browser. I've been doing a lot of development work on two sites recently, visiting them near-daily.
Both of those sites just a few days ago started ranking top in Google on their key terms for me when I search in Chrome. I see 'normal' rankings (those that the clients see) on the same computer using IE8 with the toolbar.
I was wondering if either Google is personalising my results even though I've asked them not to, but then I'd see that across all browsers if it was based on my IP. What I'm seeing is browser-specific.
It could be that Chrome hits a different set of DCs; I've seen this before when the 'Jazz' interface was my default in Chrome before I saw it in other browsers. However if I keep seeing markedly different results influenced by my activity in Chrome in the future, then I would have to conclude that if Google say they don't use data from Chrome then they are lying.
