I encountered Google Chrome in use for the first time at a meeting with a potential new web design client yesterday. Chrome is a newcomer to the browser wars, but however it measures up to the opposition with a market share of around 4% it now justifies being included when checking cross-browser compatibility. Safari, for example, only commands 3% of the browser market.
The potential client praised it’s ease of use and speed, but this was a man who boasts about spending £1000 a month on Google Adwords while expressing no interest in achieving organic search engine results by optimising his website. And who hosts his own websites on his office server. So at the moment the jury is still out on Chrome until I’ve had a chance to do some more research and drawn my own conclusions.
