In the world of search engines, it's "all hail King Google" — but it seems the king's crown may have slipped a little in 2014.
OK, not by much, but according to a new report from analytics firm StatCounter, Google's share of searches between December 2013 and December 2014 dropped by a little more than 4 percent — from 79.3 percent of all searches to 75.2 percent in the U.S.
It doesn't sound like a lot, but according to Bloomberg, it's the lowest Google's share of the market has been since 2008, when StatCounter initially started its tracking.
