Google A major complaint about Google's Chrome web browser has been that so far, it is still not available on anything other than Windows. Google promised to deliver Chrome to Mac OS X and Linux as well, but as it turns out, this is a little harder than they anticipated, Ben Goodger, Google's Chrome interface lead, has explained in an email. It has also been revealed what toolkit the Linux version of Chrome will use: Gtk+.

I'm not looking to get into some long-winded debate here. I run 2 websites that appeal to the general linux crowd (not gnome, kde, or any distro specific) and get thousands of uniques per month.

You can't get everything from webserver stats, but you can get a lot. Even if I make some very favorable assumptions for kde (like that >90% of kde users run firefox instead of konqueror), there are still more non-kde users.

Looking at other stats, normal ubuntu beats kubuntu by about 100-1. Maybe people install normal ubuntu and then install kde. I don't know. Even if you assume that kde users in general don't run ubuntu, you can't get around the fact that ubuntu itself is the most popular distro by a rather large margin (on my sites ~55% run ubuntu).
