Google Now Has 1 Billion Users – Surprised?

Dave’s just read on the Telegraph that Google now has 1 billion unique visitors – and I thought Facebook had a bigger userbase! According to the ComScore report cited on the Telegraph, this is how the top few companies break down:

Google over 1000 million (1 billion) unique visitors (8.4% up year on year)
Microsoft 905 million unique visitors (15% up year on year)
Facebook 714 million unique visitors (30% up year on year)
Yahoo 689 million unique visitors (11% up year on year)

Judging from these figures it looks as though Facebook is likely to catch Google up in a few years time, it looks as though Yahoo and Microsoft might, but based on Google’s innovation, I think this is unlikely – when people start switching operating systems (I will be) they’ll find less people have Bing/MSN set as their home page. If you’re like me, you setup FireFox/Chrome as soon as you install windows and you don’t even bother to configure IE because you’re not going to use it.
