U.S. browser market

Considering Apple iPhone’s high user rate in the United States, it is no wonder that Safari, the browser pre-installed on every iPhone, is also widely used. When it comes to the overall browser market, however, Safari’s leading status gets lost: Chrome is the number one internet browser in the United States with a market share of about 48 percent, while Safari trails as a second with around 35 percent share. Safari lags even further behind in the desktop browser market, with only around 16 percent share. This correlates to Apple’s standing in the PC market: ranked as number four in the market, Apple’s Mac computers enjoy a relatively niche yet loyal user group. With a nearly 60 percent share, Chrome is the dominating figure in the U.S. desktop browser market.
