Google announced its 50th Chrome release, which it considers a major milestone.

"We originally launched Chrome to give users a fast, simple and secure browser," said Rahul Roy-Chowdhury, director of product management on Chrome. "That still remains our mission today. And while while there’s still much more to do – especially with the shift to mobile and helping new users who are coming online for the first time – we thought we’d take a step back and reflect on our journey so far. Here at Google, we’re obsessed with stats, so we thought you might enjoy a whirlwind tour of Chrome, by the numbers."

And here they are:

Google first launched Chrome in 2008. Here's a look at the original announcement if you want to take a trip down memory lane. They even put together a comic book to illustrate the project.

Chrome became the most popular browser in the U.S. about three years ago.
