The browser’s adoption growth is exceeding all other browsers.

We’re following Google Chrome event live at YouTube.  Starting things off, Sundar Pichai, VP, Product Management at Google is giving us market share numbers.  Google (GOOG) announced 70 million users at Google I/O in May.  Today they are almost double that, at 120 million active users (which they say is conservative).  That comes out to 300% growth since January of this year.

NetApplications has shown significant growth throughout the year as well, as seen below.

Google also announced Crankshaft, a Javascript optimizer which can almost double the speed of Javascript rendering in the browser.
