Chrome is the tops.
With 70% of the world’s browser user share — a measure of browser activity calculated by analytics company Net Applications — Google’s Chrome has led the rankings for over four years. Rivals, from Microsoft’s Edge to Mozilla’s Firefox, survive on single-digit shares that pose no threat to Chrome’s dominance.
So, it’s no surprise that Chrome’s changes have an outsized impact. With each upgrade — which Computerworld tracks in the What’s in the latest Chrome update? series — and at whenever Google talks of future plans, everyone pays attention, from the browser’s users and IT administrators to competitors.
