Market research company StatCounter has researched which are the most preferred internet browsers in the world. According to the results of the research, Chrome , which was released by Google, was the most used internet browser in the world in April 2022, as it has been for years.

Safari’s usage rate dropped to 9.62 percent . We will understand better whether Firefox’s recent breakthroughs will threaten Safari, but for now, Edge seems to have snatched Safari’s turn.
When we look at the other details in the StatCounter research, we see that the usage rate of Firefox is 7.87 percent. Opera, on the other hand , does not threaten the top of the list with a usage rate of 2.44% . The total usage rate of other internet browsers on the market is 3.42 percent .
