The real question is whether Chrome is actually finished, and if its release will have any impact on Chrome’s browser market share numbers. Just last week we heard about Google’s plug-in strategy for Chrome outlined in design goals and conjecture. It offered no timelines or target dates for this project’s integration. So if one of the most valuable aspects of a contemporary browser isn’t finished, does that mean the browser should stay in beta?
In terms of market share, Chrome hasn’t fluttered above the 1 percent mark. Firefox, however, blasted through 20 percent, poising somewhat of a challenge to Internet Explorer’s 69 percent.
