In a new infographic from KISSmetrics, the analytics blog breaks down every “war” and declares a winner based on current market share. If you’ve been following the contested market share battles over the last few years, you probably already know who the current winners are in each category.

Other examples include Facebook owning 71 percent of social media market share, or Android owning 38 percent of mobile OS market share.
