UK Looks Into Apple, Google’s Mobile Browser Dominance

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) said on Friday it was also taking enforcement action against Alphabet Inc’s Google over its app store payment practices.

It said the two tech giants had an “effective duopoly” on mobile ecosystems that gave them a stranglehold on operating systems, app stores and web browsers on mobile devices.
