Everyone has a favorite web browser for browsing the vast internet. According to the data from NetMarketShare, Google Chrome is still dominating the segment with a whopping 67.39% market share.
The figures for Google Chrome have reduced a bit when compared to the previous month where it had 68.33%. However, the software giant doesn’t have to worry as the second browser on the list, Firefox, stays significantly lower at 8.63%.
The vast difference in figures between the first and second position shows how Google succeeded with its efforts to push Google Chrome as a standard. Google Chrome, being a resource-hungry web browser, manages to deliver smooth performance if you have decent hardware in your PC.
It is quite surprising that Internet Explorer still manages to come third with 6.37% while Microsoft’s own Edge falls behind at 6.09%. Apple’s Safari secures the fifth position with 4.81% which signifies that a majority of Mac users stick to the Safari browser.
Other browsers in the list include Sogou Explorer at 1.84%, QQ at 1.69%, Opera at 1.33%, Yandex at 0.85%, and UC Browser at 0.31%. These browsers are mainly being used in China, with Opera being an exception.
In the meantime, Microsoft is preparing itself to make a solid come-back to the web browsers segment with the Chromium-based Edge. We will have to wait to see if the new Chromium Edge will make any significant difference in the future.
