Executive summary

Since the browser's launch in 2008, Chrome has been trying to establish itself in Indonesia as a contender against the market leader, Firefox. Broadcast advertising had built overall brand awareness and driven downloads, but had yet to deliver significant increases in regular use.

Being a low-involvement tech product, the choice of browser is not something naturally top of mind. Coupled with the tendency of Indonesian society to be group-orientated, people naturally defaulted to the majority choice.
