The Netmarketshare data for the April is now out. The data isn’t all that surprising.

According to the data, Windows 10 is doing a pretty decent job, the market share is now 44.10 percent, up from 43.62 in the previous month. While it’s good that Windows 10 adoption is on the rise, its strongest competitor Windows 7 still holds a good amount of market share. Worse, the decline of Windows 7 is almost negligible.

Windows 7 now holds 36.43 percent of usage share, down from 36.52 percent. As you can see it’s less than 1 percent. This isn’t good news for Microsoft. The company made various attempts in the past to make Windows 7 users upgrade to Windows 10. It recently came up with a notification titled “After 10 years, support for Windows 7 is nearing an end,” which was yet another attempt to convince users to switch to Windows 10.

On the browser’s side, as expected Google Chrome still dominates the list with 65.64 percent share. Second to Chrome is the Firefox with 10.23 percent share while Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer hold 5.53 and 8.44 percent share respectively.
