Most popular browsers in Canada Q4 2019, by market share

As of the fourth quarter of 2019, Google Chrome is the most popular internet browser in Canada, controlling half of the overall market. The region’s other major competitor is Apple’s Safari browser which accounts for an additional 30.38 percent of the market share. The market’s distant third tier of competitors include Firefox, Edge, Internet Explorer, and Samsung Internet, each of which accounts for between 3 and 6 percent of the overall market.

Web broswers

Since its initial release in 2008, Google Chrome has become the most popular web browser in the world by a significant margin. While Safari is certainly a legitimate competitor in the U.S. market due to the massive popularity of Apple devices, Chrome’s worldwide market share is over 64 percent, placing the product in a league of its own. In addition, Google browser products account for 3 of the top 5 most widely used browser versions in the world, with Chrome for Android, Chrome 76, and Chrome 75 all making the list.

Shift towards mobile

Smartphones have overtaken traditional desktop computers as the most popular way to access the internet in many parts of the world, and tech giants such as Samsung and Apple have used their smartphone hardware as a platform to encourage the use of their mobile web browsers. Each iPhone comes pre-loaded with Apple’s Safari set as its default internet browser, meaning that consumers have become increasingly comfortable with the platform without having to specifically seek it out themselves.
