The battle of internet browsers is on! According to fresh data, only two internet browsers in the world have more than a billion users. While Google’s highly successful Chrome was expected to be on the list, we didn’t think Apple’s Safari browser would be the only other browser will over a billion users.

A new analysis by Atlas VPN showed that Safari has a hit over a billion users, while Google Chrome has a whopping 3.3 billion+ users. This is especially impressive for Safari, an Apple-only browser that cannot be accessed either on Android or Windows.

 According to Atlas VPN, Edge took over Firefox just over the course of last year with 212 million users.
