Why does Google Chrome show so many Run’s?

Looking at the Snow usage for Google Chrome below, it seems impossible that after only a few days you could have run Chrome so many times.

The reason is Chrome itself runs several processes - one for each tab as well as plugins - read this if you're interested. Thus Snow will count every process, every day as a ‘run’ - hence why the count is much higher than than other applications.
