In the latest All Things Digital conference (D10), Google’s SVP, Sundar Pichai, confirms that according to their internal web traffic data, Chrome is the number 1 web browser in most countries and gets over 50% market share in many regions. This means that Chrome has overtaken IE to become the most popular web browser:
Chrome grew roughly 300 percent last year – we have hundreds of millions of active users. We have many ways of looking at it. You can argue about the data, but in general I think we have gained substantial mindshare since we’ve launched the product. I think it’s fair to say that we are number one or number two in all countries in the world. It’s fair to say that roughly a third of people are using Chrome; I think it’s much more than a third in the consumer space. [Emphasis added]
This news basically confirms what Statcounter found earlier this year, that Chrome overtook IE in the web browser market. Chrome’s market share in the week of 14 May to 20 May, according to Statcounter, was 32.76% while IE had only 31.94%. This is the first time Chrome overtook IE, according to Statcounter. Besides, Chrome had already beaten Firefox in 2011.

According to thechromesource, this feature was first found in Internet Explorer. Google copying from Microsoft? Yes.

Sometimes this cause trouble because you need to sign out and sign in to check emails. This is particularly annoying for Chromebook users since by default the account you used to log-in the computer is the account you entered Google.
How to Use Multiple Sign-in?
In fact, some Google services have already supported multiple sign-in, meaning that you can sign-in to more than one account (actually 10 accounts) using the same browser session. The process is easy.
