Web browser market share in Belgium in 2019

What is the browser usage like in Belgium? Google Chrome was the most used internet browser in Belgium in 2019 with a market share of around 57 percent. This ranking consists of both mobile as well as desktop browsers. This might explain the entries for some specific browsers, like Apple’s Safari (which is a desktop browser but comes pre-installed on iPhones) or Samsung Internet. The smartphone penetration in Flanders (the Dutch-speaking region of Belgium) was 81 percent in 2018.

Internet access in Belgium is on the up…

In 2017, roughly 86 percent of Belgian households had access to the Internet. This was below the European average of 87 percent. Compared to other European countries, Belgium was considered slightly below average when it comes to Internet access at home. This value increased in 2018, however, and has been increasing steadily in recent years.

… as well as mobile Internet use.

Communication and entertainment are popular ways for Belgians to spend time on the Internet. Facebook and Facebook Messenger ranked among the most cited apps that were used every day in Belgium in 2017. This is much the same for teenagers from Flanders, although they also mention Instagram and YouTube as their preferred smartphone apps.
