Most Popular Web Browsers In 2023 [Infographic]

Written by: Aditya Rana

Sep 12, 2023

most popular web browsers

Internet browsers are just like doors to our homes.

They’re how most people get online. And while the door to your home probably doesn’t change often, people’s browser preferences do.

Remember Netscape Navigator or AOL Explorer?

If you don’t, either you’re young or have simply forgotten these digital relics and I don’t blame you.

Here are the most popular web browsers in 2023:

  1. Chrome
  2. Safari
  3. Microsoft Edge
  4. Opera
  5. Firefox
most popular web browsers in 2023

As of July 2023, Chrome still reigns supreme with 63.55% of the browser market share., with Safari a distant second at around 20%.

Why does browser popularity matter in the first place?

Well, each browser will display a website (text and images) slightly different so it’s important to know which to prioritize during cross-browser compatibility testing to ensure a consistent user experience.

For users, popularity reveals what people value most: speed, integration with other services, privacy, and more.

Of course, market share is constantly changing and we can’t learn much by looking at one year of data.

It’s also important to also track changes in browser market share over time to understand user behavior, trends, and preferences in this competitive market.

Global Browser Market Share Over Time

I tracked browser market share between 2015 to 2023 and here are the results:

global browser share over time (all platforms)

The takeaway?

Chrome is still king and its market share continues to grow at the expense of Opera and Firefox.
