There’s no stopping the Internet-wielding population – not that anyone plans to stop surfing the Internet and the web any time soon.
In fact, the fight is on the grounds of what platform they’re using to browse. The gateway to browsing becomes as strategic a point as exactly where they land, particularly for people concerned with building these landing points.
Top Browsers for the Past Year
It isn’t a matter of just pride for the people behind these browsers. The question of popularity helps scores of professionals from advertisers to the web designers and developers.
Equipped with the who’s who and what’s what, designers and developers can get a better idea of where to pool their resources (especially on a budget), and marketing people find out whom they could be reaching out to. Without further ado, the data:
According to StatCounter Global Stats, Chrome takes the lead across the globe as the top browser in the past year, hovering at 39.03% of usage across all users. Internet Explorer has second place with its share of users dipping since April 2013 and slowly inching higher, now at 28.81% for the month of September.
The other browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Safari remain fairly stable with 20.64% and 8.24% of usage. Users of the Opera browser factor in at 1.19% worldwide.
Desktop and Mobile Figures
Despite the drop in PC sales in 2013 Q3, desktop remains the more used channel by a large margin (84.95%), while Google continues to sit on the throne for mobile searches. The majority (93.96%) of mobile users turn to the search engine for all their data searching needs.
