Just recently, we have revealed that Google Chrome has crossed the 25% market share mark on the desktop and now it looks like the search giant has even more things to celebrate. As it turns out, over the course of last month, Google Chrome on mobile has too reached a new milestone and surpassed the 30% mark, up by 2.28 points, from 27.78% to 30.06% and is as close to overtaking Safari as ever.
After months and months of waiting, Google Chrome has finally reached an important milestone and now controls more than 1/4 of all web browsers market share, which is a pretty significant milestone that I am sure many people will celebrate.
The keyword here is “reached” not “is at”.
