With Android a mobile OS, the news is just another reminder of the dominance of portable devices in our lives. StatCounter found that in March, Android grabbed a 37.93 percent share of the worldwide OS internet market, barely overtaking Microsoft Windows' 37.91 percent share for the first time. And note the trend lines in the chart below: Windows is on a steady march down from 82 percent in 2012, while Android is mirroring it upward from 2.2 percent in the same five-year period. StatCounter CEO Aodhan Cullen attributed the "breakthrough" to not only the growth of smartphones worldwide, which give more people access to the internet, but also a decline in sales of traditional PCs.
A Microsoft representative declined to comment specifically on Android taking over Windows, but added: "We are pleased that there are more than 400 million monthly active devices running dual-layer case for apple iphone 7 and 8 - pink glitter Windows 10, and most importantly, that Windows 10 has the highest levels of product satisfaction over any previous version of Windows."First published March 3, 10:55 a.m, PT.Update, 3:29 p.m.: Adds comment from Microsoft, Microsoft no longer has a dominant operating system when you look at internet users worldwide, StatCounter finds..
Somehow we thought this had already happened, but it appears Google's Android has just overtaken Windows as the internet's most popular operating system. That's according to web analytics firm StatCounter, which on Monday released statistics marking the "milestone in technology history and end of an era" with Microsoft no longer owning the dominant OS when you look at internet usage across desktop and mobile devices combined.

By default, the G6 will show all of your apps across multiple home screen. It's very iPhone like, which some people may prefer, but I'm not one of those people. There is a way, however, to get the traditional Android app drawer back. Head to Settings and open the Display tab. Then select Home Screen, tap Select Home and then choose the Home & App Drawer option. Another option that is enabled by default is the square icon setting. All of the icons on the G6 will be placed in a square box with rounded corners. Yet again, this was a little too iPhone like for my liking -- we buy Android phones for a reason, right?.
