Google is a large part of the internet, but really how large is it? According to The Telegraph, Google websites are over 5 percent of web traffic in the UK, in short 1 out of every 20 websites visited are Google-owned.
Google Chrome, Google’s web browser turned 5 years old a month ago. The web browser is available for Windows, MacOSX and Linux, as well as both Android and iOS. Though I was not able to find any numbers on how many people use Google Chrome opposed to other web browsers, such as Mozilla Firefox, Opera, or Internet Explorer; I would assume that Google Chrome has the majority of users.
As for their search engine, there are a few other search engines. Personally I use Google for my searches, I like the format, it is simple to use, and I am usually able to find exactly what I am looking for in just a few seconds. Though some of you may use Yahoo or Bing instead of Google, Google is perhaps the most used.
Google owns many of the websites that we visit every day: Blogger, GoogleDrive, Google Play, Google+, Google Maps, Google.com, Gmail, YouTube, and Google.co.uk.
Google is in so many different parts of the electronics market that it would be hard for someone to not know who they are. They are perhaps even the largest electronics based company with a head count just shy of 45,000 employees. I can only assume that they will continue to grow as they acquire more businesses and come out with new products. Though it looks like they have terminated over 10,000 employees after their Motorola acquisition.
Do you use Google.com as your search engine, or you their other products, let us know in the comments below.
Thank you to The Telegraph for providing us with this information.
