Safari Users Top One Billion For First Time
Apple’s Safari browser now has one billion global users, the first time it has crossed this threshold.
This is according to figures released by Atlas VPN. Despite this milestone, the browser is still well behind Google Chrome, which boasts a whopping 3.379 billion users – over 60 per cent of all users.
Microsoft’s Edge is the third-most used browser, with 212.7 million users, while Firefox, which just celebrated its 100th update, lags at fourth, with 179 million.
As Atlas notes, the fact that Safari comes pre-installed on iPhones, MacBooks and the like has no doubt contributed to its high numbers – the number of active users is likely to be a lot lower, given how generally bad Safari tends to be.
