Most used browser versions in Germany 2020

Currently Chrome 84.0 is the most used internet browser in Germany, followed by Firefox 79.0. This graph shows percentages for browsers used only on desktop computers and laptops, excluding smartphones and tablets.

Trust issues

Google Chrome has experienced a jump in browser market share during recent years, while Firefox has faced the opposite. In fact, Google and its various online services are dominating Europe in terms of search engine, smartphone OS and browser market share. It’s not all roses, though. Google has been investigated and repeatedly fined by the EU Commission for essentially abusing its market leadership in various ways. The third fine was announced in March 2019 at 1.5 billion euros, regarding its anticompetitive restrictions for third-party websites.

Most popular search engine

Google’s leading position is echoed the world over. Based on recent figures, the highest share of desktop search traffic from Google was recorded in India, followed by Brazil and Italy. Spain also made the top five.
