Baidu has ~63%, Google has ~31%.  Q4 2009 was Google's best Q in China ever.

While I admit that 31% is not the market share Google usually enjoys, it certainly is not horrible.  Most companies would love to have 1/3 of a market as big and growing as China.

Oh, and I prefer Google over Baidu when I'm in China (which is frequently).  Their results are better, and I can get some in English. :)
