It is official now: search engine’s web browser has officially overtaken Internet Explorer as the most popular web browser in the world and even in the US. The reports reveal that Google’s Chrome has 31.8% of the combined desktop and mobile online market – in other words, Google’s freeware is up 6% year-over-year. As for Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, which once ruled the known world, it now accounts for 30.9% only.
However, the statistics that have been made public are somewhat suspect, because the same report listed Apple’s Safari in the third place with a market share of 25%, while Mozilla’s Firefox held only 8% of the market – apparently, most users would think there was something wrong with these figures. But the report insists that such sharp decline was likely due to Firefox lack of mobile presence. Maybe, such results were obtained because the figures included mobile browsing and were focused on the United States where Apple is a king on the smartphone market. Its Safari browser has officially cornered the mobile market due to overwhelming popularity of Apple’s iPhone.
Chrome was already recognized as a market leader worldwide, with industry experts estimating its usage at 43%. Technology analysts also admit that the results are likely due to the increased reliance of the mobile OS. Microsoft’s Internet Explorer had long held onto its dominance by being the default browser on desktop computers. The problem is that mobile devices aren’t relying on IE as a web portal, as they normally run or embed Chrome or Safari by default.
Chances are that Google’s Chrome will become the default browser on all Android devices in the nearest future, and it has enjoyed even more success outside of the United States where it took over the market share lead in 2013.

|I thought Google Chrome was malware that installs when you don't want it to.|
|Goggle’s Chrome..? heheheh .... typo.|
|I wish there where better and more browsers and search engines to choose from.|
|@eNdEmion Spot on my friend. Just the "Login to Chrome" makes me want to puke, sounds like "Let's resume looking at what you were browsing" .|
What's you input on best browser for "relative" safety on the clear web.

|The only reason people use chrome is because every thing running android has it by default, most people don't even know there are more secure and more private alternatives.|
I'll stick with Waterfox on my desktop and firefox on my mobile devices even though it's not the best user interface at this point.

|Well, it cannot be the most popular. I think it is the most bundled web browser. When someone is installing a program on PC, he/she doesn`t know that Google Chrome is bundled, and it will be installed as well. Of course you can choose not to instal it, but many people doesn`t know it.|
I clean and repaire computers every day and almost every computer has Google chrome installed. Thought the owner doesn`t know about it and keeps using Mozilla firefox. So, Chrome can be the most installed web browser, but Mozilla Firefox is the most used browser.
|https://www.epicbrowser.com/ Best browser if you DON'T want to be tracked, and you can access lot's of blocked sites without the hassle of downloading basic vpn's|
|I use firefox with duckduck plus with adblock plus,mask me and anonymox and even then I always use secure browsing and delete all cookies on close in preferences,I do not ever use chrome as security over speed is more important and even then I do not use plain speech with friends just to confusticate any that may be listening.|
|I dumped google after trying waterfox, its really a 64bit firefox as far as I can see. I'm happy with it and it doesn't look like google it has the old firefox look|
|I've been around computers since the 80's and I find the Firefox cousin 'PaleMoon' to be an excellent browser. The range of add-ons is superior to many other browsers. Also the virus developers tend to favor the heavier trafficked browsers. In my opinion.|
|I also use 'palemoon' , uninstalled chrome due to privacy concerns and its bloody annoying notifications bell|
|yes, i like chrome very much.. its best browser ever. thanks.|
|Uninstalled chrome when THEY decided which security extentions / plugins I am allowed to use . not even a dialogue .. Are u Sure ?|

|Yesterday Chrome updated, now it won't allow some of my extensions to operate because I didn't get them from the Chrome Store. Like mangojack I said Goodbye Chrome, Hello FireFox!!|
