Since bursting onto the scene in 2008, Chrome has gained momentum to the point where in 2014, it was crowned king of the browsers by nudging out Firefox and Internet Explorer in terms of market share.
According to user data from StatCounter, Chrome now has the largest share of users on desktop, mobile and tablet browsers worldwide.
