Among web browsers, Apple’s Safari is no slouch. But it still has bottom-of-the-pack ranking among desktop browsers worldwide – at least in part because of the dominance of Windows. Although it naturally dominates as the default browser on macOS and iOS hardware, Safari is the least popular of all the major desktop browsers, with just 3.9% of the global market share in August.

Although its feature set may not be on par with Google’s Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Mozilla’s Firefox, Apple continually updates browser to patch security holes and roll out new features. According to Apple, the version included in the forthcoming macOS High Sierra will block ad trackers and stop autoplay videos by default.
