Let's rewind to May of 2009, Google had reported 70 million Chrome users. Just today they have reached 120 million users on a daily basis. This is a huge jump for Google.

It's currently number 3 in the browser market with 9.26 percent overall share. Chrome's product manager Sundar Pichai announced today that Google will be making the browser even faster with an enhancement called "Crankshaft", he explains:

"When Chrome was first announced two years ago, its new javascript engine, V8, was 8x faster than the fastest existing engine. And it was 16x faster than IE. We've continued to improve, and today we are announcing an enchancement called Crankshaft. This makes the engine up to 2x faster than it is today depending on the benchmark. It's 50x as fast as the fastest web browsers 2 years ago and 100x faster than IE was two years ago."

What will the numbers be in 2011? I can only see it increasing.
