Browser rankings

Rick Frederickson
Computer Technician

We all use browsers to surf the web. Some use Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer. Others like Google Chrome. Some use Mozilla Firefox, Safari or Opera.
While I have my favorite, Firefox, yours might be another. That's OK. They all do the same thing as they are all programs that connect us to the Internet.
But what is the most popular?
Far and away it is Google Chrome, according to U.S. analytics vendor Net Applications. Chrome had a whopping 61 percent market share.
The next closest are Microsoft's Edge and Internet Explorer together at just 16 percent.
Firefox came in at 11 percent. Opera had a 4 percent share. All other browsers together came in at 8 percent.
Another interesting piece of this is while Chrome gained, all others lost user share.
My advice in picking a browser is use the one most comfortable to you. However, I would suggest you try the others. You might be surprised. You can have more than one browser on your computer and they won't interfere with each other. In fact, I recommend you have at least two in case one of them stops working or won't work on a specific website.
Happy surfing.
