After years of total domination Windows 10 could soon be overtaken as the world's biggest operating system for accessing the web.
New research from StatCounter has revealed that Google's Android OS is catching Windows in terms of total internet usage across desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile combined.
The independent web analytics company said that in February this year Android came within striking distance of taking the top spot from Microsoft.
In fact, whilst Windows remained the most popular OS last month, with a 38.6% share of the market, Android was just over one per cent behind with 37.4%.
“The idea of Android almost matching Windows would have been unthinkable five years ago,” commented Aodhan Cullen, CEO, StatCounter.
As I predicted, eventually the average user will be using a phone instead of a desktop or laptop and as we all know Windows on the phone is a non-starter when speaking of market share.
