Why Chrome Is Google's Secret Weapon

Google's (NASDAQ: GOOGL  ) Chrome Internet browser has been growing like gangbusters. The company recently reported that over 750 million monthly active Chrome users exist in the world, which is an increase of 300 million users since last year.

However, like many other web companies, it's also struggling to adapt to an increasingly mobile world. Despite gaining an enviable lead with its Android operating system, the market isn't sold.
