Google Android Now More Popular Than Windows For The First Time
For the first time since the 1980s, Microsoft's Windows has finally been beaten by Google's Android. Being on the top of the computer business for so long, Windows has now relinquished its title as the world's most dominant computing platform. Android just took the crown last month as it now runs on four out of five smartphones around the world.
Overtaking the PC giant in terms of the most popular and widely used browsing platforms on the internet is no small feat. Aodham Cullen, chief executive of StatCounter, calculated the two tech giant rivals' popularity performance and reported the change. He explained that the present overtaking is a milestone in technology history and the end of an era.
Mr. Cullen added that Google's Android topped the worldwide OS Internet usage market share for the month of March with 37.93 percent. This places the tech giant marginally ahead of Windows' 37.91 percent share. This is an exceptional event as it is the first time that it has happened since shortly after Windows was first released three decades ago.
Android just recently risen to the limelights, impressively beating out Microsoft's Windows. Bill Gate's computer and software company has been the world's most popular operating system until now. According to The Telegraph, while Microsoft has maintained the desktop browsing internet market share, the company has been struggling to maintain its number one position.
One of the obvious reasons why Google's Android have now emerged as the dominating OS and internet browser platform is due to the increasing popularity of smartphones. According to the Sci-Tech Today, Microsoft attempted to hold on to its crown but was overwhelmed by the more capable hands of Android and Apple's iOS. In short, the smartphone industry is basically its Achilles' heel.
