|I think your inference that the use of Chrome as a browser used to access this site implies an increase in the use of Chrome *for development* is fundamentally flawed. As "R" says, most developers will use multiple browsers and the browser I use for development may bear no relation to the one I use for accessing the Internet.|
I personally develop using FF (with a boat-load of extensions) but prior to release of the software I perform function and speed tests on IE, Opera, Netscape, Avant, Chrome and (Win-) Safari. I assume all professional developers do the same! ;)

|If you read the article again, you may notice that nowhere it was mentioned that the users are switching to Chrome for development.|
What was said is that many PHP developers (almost 10%) using this site have switched to Chrome in just one year.
Nobody disputed the fact that developers should use different browsers to test their sites.

Well I think you should have made this clearer in your blog since that is obviously the impression that I (and several of the other commentators) have got from reading your post.

|You are assuming that everybody uses different browsers for developing sites and for browsing the Web.|
I do not think most users are developing sites with one browser and switch to another browser just to access this site, especially when this site is used by developers looking for PHP components to study or use in their projects.

|No, I am not assuming that - rather it is *you* who are assuming that all developers use the same browser for development as they do for accessing the web. I merely point out this might not be true.|
You may be right but that is not proven by your statistics. That is the sole point of my original post.
