Internet Explorer was the subject of a number of laughs from a decade now, but to the credit of Microsoft, the browser improved over the years, but it did not manage to overcome its bad credibility sadly. That’s why Microsoft released a new Windows 10 browser called Edge.
Microsoft’s decision seems to have proven fruitful as Microsoft’s Edge browser is now the second most popular browser in the world, based on the utilization figures published by NetMarketShare.
Initially, the distinction went to Mozilla’s Firefox, which had a 7.2 percent browser market share, but it seems as if Microsoft Edge has prevailed in edging rivalry (pun intended) with a market share of 7.6 percent.
How Microsoft Edge Has Become More Strong?
First of all, the Add-On Store Microsoft Edge provides a large variety of plugins that are more usable for the Microsoft Edge Browser. Furthermore, it is planned to make it easy for users to install extensions designed for Chrome early, so it is much more convincing to select Edge.
Certain improvements that will make Chrome stand out are already on the way. This includes “vertical buttons” and an option to search if your password is on the dark web. Edge also plans to use a “Smart Copy” feature to preserve the original formatting for copying and pasting.
While it helps that any Windows 10 update already has a default browser, it is promising that true acceptance of Microsoft Edge is just starting to take off.
First of all, it reveals that giving users what they really want works – Microsoft Edge was a browser that several people wanted to use Chrome for many years.
However, as this variant is based on chromium, it does not make any strides in everyday usage when keeping with Edge. There are of course many reasons why users began flocking to Microsoft Edge’s latest and updated.
But Google’s Chrome browser remains largely the dominant browser which controls a massive 68.5 percent of the user market, so it’s a long time before any competition catches up, if any. We also think Microsoft’s decision to rebuild Edge using Chromium (Chrome is designed on the same platform) was likely that helped the company.
