While the phrase
As of 2019, Chrome usage is 50%
is perhaps not strictly incorrect, as it can be interpreted as a compound noun, in my opinion here a possessive form is significantly clearer and better:
As of 2019, Chrome's usage is 50%
Better yet is to recast the sentence, as:
- As of 2019, the usage of Chrome is 50%
- As of 2019, the usage of the Chrome browser is 50%
The final form makes the subject maximally clear, as other things may be known as "chrome".
Furthermore, the sentence would be improved by indicating 50% of what. Of browsers installed? of browsers used recently? Or some other measure? and what is the source of this figure?
