According to the data NetMarketShare, now more people use the Microsoft Edge browser than the Mozilla Firefox browser. This makes Edge the second most popular desktop browser in the world, although Google Chrome still leads by a huge margin and currently occupies 68.5% of the market.
This month, Edge first surpassed Firefox in popularity and market share for the first time. So, a year ago, in the spring of 2019, Mozilla Firefox kept at the level of 9.27%, however, during the year the browser gradually lost its position, and as a result, by March 2020, it owned only 7.19% of the market.
Microsoft Edge, in turn, had a market share of 5.20% a year ago, but over the past time it has risen to the level of 7.59%, that is, it is now 0.40% ahead of Firefox.
As a result, as of the end of March 2020, the TOP-10 desktop browsers are as follows:
|Internet Explorer 11||5.60%|
Edge is expected to continue to grow further. So, it was recently reported that Windows 10 is already installed on one billion devices, and the new Edge will soon be distributed to them through Windows Update. In addition, with the advent of the version based on Chromium, the browser has become faster, has acquired many useful features, and is now compatible with any extensions from the Chrome Web Store.
