Google Chrome 59 also brought some significant Material Design changes, as well as using native macOS notifications rather than Chrome notifications. It also brought in the Image Capture API so developers can have their apps access all of the device’s camera settings.
Google Chrome has long been the world’s most popular browser, and its current market share stands at over 59 percent. The number two and three spots are taken by Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge, but even the combined market share of those two browsers from Microsoft are less than 20 percent. Safari has lost ground as well, going from nearly 5 percent in June last year to slightly over 3.5 percent a year later, in June 2017.
There’s no doubt that Google Chrome is the king of browsers, and a very likely explanation for that is its deep integration with many of Google’s services, not the least of which is Google Search. Even Google Drive has much more functionality on Google Chrome than on other browsers, and it’s very likely that Google will keep it that way indefinitely.
If you haven’t yet received the update to Google Chrome 59 for your Android device, don’t worry; global rollouts generally happen in stages, so you should be getting it soon.
