U.S. market share held by mobile browsers 2015-2019, by month In April 2019, Apple’s Safari was the most popular mobile internet browser in the United States, with a market share of over 50 percent. Google’s Chrome came as a close second with 40.68 market share.
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 50 percent, while Safari trails as a second with around 32 percent share. Safari lags even further behind in the desktop browser market, with only 8.76 percent share, behind both Chrome and Internet Explorer. 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 63 percent share, Chrome is the dominating figure in the U.S. desktop browser market.
