Without much doubts, you’ll all agree that Android OS is a powerful OS that powers billions of devices all over the world.
Well, there is a new report from StatCounter, that Android has surpassed Windows as the world’s most popular operating system for browsing the internet.
The report is based on a sample size of over 15 billion page views per month and the mention “Internet usage” is strictly the viewing of website pages. This report does not include app or data usage as part of the results.
Android topped the worldwide OS internet usage market share with 37.93% in the month of March, which put it marginally ahead of Windows at 37.91% for the first time. This position represents a major breakthrough for Android which held just 2.4% of global internet usage five years ago. StatCounter also called it a milestone in technology history and the end of an era for Microsoft’s dominant OS.
The chart above shows overall internet usage market share over the past five years. Here you can see the steady decline of Windows as the primary internet device has inversely shifted to Android on a world-wide scale.
