SQLite is a small, fast and full-featured database management system contained in a C library. SQLite is widely used and it can be found by default in many mobile and desktop operating systems, including Windows 10, macOS, iOS, Android, BlackBerry 10 OS, Oracle Solaris 10, FreeBSD, and LG webOS. It’s also used by popular web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox and Safari.
