The information shows what percentage of users chose Google, the mobile operating system from Google and the Chrome browser. Considered the largest European countries: Spain, Italy, Germany, France and Great Britain.
Google Search entirely dominates the competitors in these countries. It is used by more than 90 percent of people. As for Android, the operating system is also incredibly popular, especially in Spain. Only in the UK Android is not the most popular mobile OS. And more than half of Europeans are using the Chrome browser. Android operating system are offered by many manufacturers of smart phones, and this has contributed to its popularity. Google actively uses its capabilities, making any manufacturer devices wishing to license the store Google Play apps to pre-set search on Google and Chrome.
