Google Chrome for mobile devices has just joined a very select group of products, reaching over a billion users at least on a monthly basis. Back in November, Google announced that the user base of its web browser for mobiles had doubled over the year, jumping from 400 million back in 2014 to 800 million. Now, the one billion barrier has fallen as well.

Google Chrome has reached another big milestone this week, namely its 50th release. According to an infographic published on the official Chrome Blog, there is much more to this browser than just the one billion users each month:

  • 771 billion pages loaded
  • 500 billion characters saved thanks to autocomplete (over 186,000 years of typing based on an average speed of 30 wpm)
  • 2 million GB less data used thanks to Chrome's data-saving features
  • 3.6 billion web pages automatically translated
  • protects users 145 million times from malicious web pages 
  • $2,500,000 USD in rewards for the security research community

Google Chrome has been around for eight years on desktop computers. It is now available on Windows, Mac, and Linux, as well as iOS and Android. However, these mobile versions came out in 2012, which makes the numbers mentioned above even more impressive.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
