  • Segment market share statistics, December 2017

      • parentnode.dk

    Desktop browsers are still – but only barely – the most common way of browsing the web, representing approximately 49% of page visits (vs. 60% back in June 2015). Mobile browser numbers are still climbing and mobile/smartphones now represent approximately 46% of the total page visits (up from 35% in 2015), while tablets is stable on about 5%.

  • The Chrome Browser

      • parentnode.dk

    In 2008 Google released the first version of Google Chrome based on Apples WebKit engine. The browser was a remarkable improvement for Windows users which didn't have access to a WebKit browser yet. Since then the WebKit based browsers have become a dominant player on both desktop and mobile devices. In 2013 Chrome switched to a WebKit fork named Blink to allow more freedom for the Chrome development.

  • The Firefox browser

      • parentnode.dk

    Firefox is an open source browser developed by the Mozilla foundation. Firefox is by all means a full feature browser and one of the few browsers with its own rendering engine as more and more producers switch to the WebKit engine.

  • The Safari browser

      • parentnode.dk

    In 2003 Apple released the first version of Safari, using a fork of the KHTML rendering engine they called WebKit. Safari became the default browser of the OS X series and the rendering engine has been adopted by a wide range of browsers since then, most notably Google Chrome uses a WebKit fork called Blink.

  • The Edge browser

      • parentnode.dk

    Microsoft Edge is the successor to the infamous Internet Explorer. It was first released in 2015, with a strong orientation towards web standards. When it first came out it almost parred it's competitors, but since then, possibly due to a very slow adoption, development has slowed down.
