Microsoft Windows notes the most popular OS for browsing the Internet for a long time. Now, Google’s Android OS has overtaken the highest mark.
According to the recent reports by Statcounter, Google’s mobile OS holds the stake of 37.93 percent in Internet usage. On the other hand, Windows has 37.91 percent share in internet usage. This marks the first time another OS surpassing the windows concerning internet usage.
“This is a milestone in technology history and the end of an era. It marks the end of Microsoft’s leadership worldwide of the OS market which it has held since the 1980s. It also represents a breakthrough for Android which held just 2.4% of global Internet usage share only five years ago.” commented Aodhan Cullen, CEO, StatCounter.
Microsoft has come a long way to making their Windows platform popular on mobile devices. Sadly, the company is now way behind Android. Apple’s iOS stands third with 13.09 percent of Internet users from its devices. Evolution of smartphones globally and availability of all internet features in compact devices can be accredited for this.
