Despite being somewhat difficult to set up, it is the most feature rich and has the largest website share. We didn't have any data showing the share Blogger had on the internet, but we did have sources that indicated that Wordpress was the #1 most used blogging platform. The only thing Wordpress is missing is it's not search friendly. Blogger sites all use the *.blogspot.com URL template. Therefore, according to Google, blogspot.com gets one Alexia score in the search engine. and since the blogspot.com "website" has so many backlinks and content (not to mention it's run by Google), it does get a higher ranking in Google and other search engines compared to its Wordpress counterpart. So with that, Wordpress dominates the Blogshere, making it a winner for today's Tech Wars.
