CNET news had an article making the point that Chrome is used by 1 out of 8 Internet users. But I knew the GreenM3 visitors are different and there was a much higher use of Chrome, 22.3%.
One out of eight people now use Chrome
Chrome is still the third-ranked browser in terms of worldwide usage, but its share is steadily climbing.

Chrome is now used by one out of every eight people on the Internet, new statistics show, but Microsoft's newest browser is showing signs of steady growth, too.
Specifically, Chrome usage increased from 11.9 percent in April to 12.5 percent in May, according to statistics released today by Net Applications. The company bases its measurements on population-adjusted measurements of visitors to Web sites using its analytics tools.
Here is another interesting part of the GreenM3 visitors. The #1 browser is Firefox - 30.9%. #2 is IE 28.6%. #3 is Chrome 22.3%, and #4 is Safari with 14.4%.
One year ago IE was #1 with 38.7%, then Firefox and Chrome.
Here is the OS breakdown for the May 2011. I am surprised the amount of users who are using iPhone, iPad and Android.
