So, it's Chrome. My biggest change with Chrome has been the use of Tab Groups, so now I can have an excessive number of tabs open, but at least they're organized and mostly hidden.
As it turns out, I'm far from the only user of Chrome. As the following chart from Statista shows, Chrome's market share has been hovering above 60% for the past few years.
What's particularly noticeable is how far down Microsoft's browsers are in terms of market share. To be fair, it all started to go downhill for Microsoft back in 1997 when U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson ruled Microsoft could no longer bundle IE 4.0 with Windows.
There are, of course, some mitigating factors here. Statista's market share analysis covers all platforms, including phones. iPhones ship with a rather capable version of Safari and even Android phones that come with a vendor proprietary browser also usually come with Chrome. Of course, Edge comes with Windows Phones…oh, wait…yeah. That happened. There are no Windows phones.
The magnitude of all this is very interesting, especially when you think about it in relative size of market. Chrome owns 60% of the market. Safari owns one-third of that amount. And Microsoft is one-quarter of that.
So there you have it. Chrome is the undisputed champion. Safari (largely due to the iPhone) is #2. And Edge, Firefox (ooh, remember Firefox?), IE, and all the rest battle it out for the bottom 5%.
