From these charts it seems that Chrome completely died out... strange... I wonder how valid the data is. Is Chrome really no longer used?
Chrome just doesn't really have a market that truely wants it: the trendies/hipsters and techies are more likely to use Firefox which is significantly more customizable (e.g. Adblock) and already has a massive ecosystem surrounding it. Then there's Chrome's massive memory usage to contend with: the situation with plugins is not bad enough to warrant process-per-tab design.
Ultimately had Google introduced Chrome in 2004 it would have stopped Firefox from getting anywhere, but it's just a product that nobody feels they need. It's like Metacafe and Vimeo trying to take on YouTube.
