As of Chrome 64, Chrome for Windows is compiled with Clang. We now use Clang to build Chrome for all platforms it runs on: macOS, iOS, Linux, Chrome OS, Android, and Windows. Windows is the platform with the second most Chrome users after Android according to statcounter, which made this switch particularly exciting.

I wonder if it's the technical merit of llvm in general, or gpl3 that's turning people away from gcc nowadays.

Granted, this is windows build we're talking about, but it seems that llvm is pushing forward on all fronts.
