Think you know the top web browsers?
Peter O'Shaughnessy

I think there’s a huge omission from this list: Facebook. According to data from Scientia’s Mobile Overview Report 2016, the Facebook WebView was responsible for 48% of iOS web traffic and 34% of Android web traffic in November 2016. By my reckoning, that makes it the world’s biggest mobile browser. It may be using different layout & render engines, but it’s a consistent interface—isn’t that what makes a browser?
