At Google I/O, Google SVP for Chrome and Android Sundar Pichai said that the Chrome browser now has over 750 million monthly active users. This is up from 450 million million monthly active users from the year before. This number includes desktop and mobile users.
The Google Chrome browser launched in 2008 and it is now the most popular browser in the world. Pichai said that Chrome is a very important platform for Google that is side-by-side with Android.
Earlier this month, the Google Chrome team announced that the browser now has push notifications and they decided to switch from WebKit in favor of the Blink rendering engine.
