Web browsers are important for users today. With most of our digital lives spent online, it can be hard to narrow down which web browser is the best for the job. According to information gathered by netmarketshare, the leading browser in April was, surprise, surprise Google Chrome.

In the data, it shows Google Chrome leading the charge when it comes to most popular web browsers at 41.67 percent of the data collected, which examines desktop website traffic. This also marks a 39 percent increase from March. At the same time, Internet Explorer’s shares decreased 41.3 percent over the last month. This is important, as it’s the first time Chrome has surpassed IE to assume the top spot, at least in the eyes of Net Market Share.

Browser comparisons, though not as prominent as they once were, are still important for consumers to know to maximize their Internet experience. Google Chrome and Mozilla’s Firefox are regularly updated and streamlined, which helps to boost their popularity amongst users. Google’s popularity is also increased due to it being the default browser for every version of Windows except Windows 10.

The data gathered by netmarketshare reflect not only user trends but also the ways that we’re utilizing digital life on the Internet.
