Internet Explorer reigned supreme for a while, but now the situation is grim for Microsoft's web browser. Google Chrome arrived back in 2008 but managed to climb all the way up, pushing IE all the way down to the third place in the US, where Safari grabs the second position.

According to the figures released by the federal government's Digital Analytics Program (DAP), Chrome has control of no less than 44.5 percent of the US web browser market. Safari grabs 25.4 percent, while all Internet Explorer versions combined barely manage to reach 15.5 percent. However, Internet Explorer 11.0 has 13.5 percent, leaving the other versions, except 7.0, with less than 1 percent.

Firefox, once holding the silver crown, has fallen to forth place, controlling a share twice as small as Microsoft - just 7.4 percent. Safari, on the other hand, managed to grab the second place thanks to the fact that DAP's figures bring together desktop and mobile browsers.

At last, both StatCounter and NetMarketShare place Chrome on first place as well, both with over 50 percent.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
