Statistics Reveal Google Chrome’s Dominance of the Desktop Browser Market

When it comes to browsers that you might end up using in order to surf the internet, Google Chrome is the choice that ends up coming to mind most often. However, other browsers such as Firefox also seem popular, and Microsoft’s new Edge browser has generated a fair amount of buzz as well, so it can be easy to assume that Chrome is just one of the many browsers that people often end up using on a regular basis for a wide variety of reasons.

However, it is important to note that when you look at the numbers it starts to become easier to see just how much control Google Chrome actually has on the market and a big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that it has 70.19% share of the market , i.e. according to NetMarketShare. While Microsoft Edge has seen a slight increase from 7.86% to 8.07% and Firefox has gone from 7.23% to 7.58%, these changes are pretty miniscule and the numbers themselves are tiny when compared to just how widespread the usage for Google Chrome generally seems to be.

Google isn’t doing that well when it comes to Operating System Market Share. ChromeOS has a tiny 0.41% share of the market which goes to show that not all of Google’s attempts end up being this successful. It is also important to note that Linux has been seeing a rise in popularity for quite some time now as well, going from 3.17% to 3.61% over the last month. Windows is still going strong with its market share increasing slightly over the past month, and MacOS is not doing so well since it is seen a small reduction in its market share over the past month.
