Edge overtakes Firefox with 8,84% market share
Again and again they overtook each other, now it seems that the second place on the browser market is becoming more and more apparent. Microsoft Edge has achieved %8.84 percent market penetration – and has clearly overtaken Firefox. Mozilla’s open-source browser now only achieves 7.19 percent and thus has to admit defeat. The clear market leader remains Google’s browser Chrome, which with 69.94 percent of all users remains the leader by far.

Chrome dominates the smartphone browser market
The statistics of Netmarketshare’s analysts are purely related to the browser market. For Mozilla, the outlook for smartphones may look even gloomier, as Google’s browser dominates even more – also due to the standard delivery on Android devices.
Microsoft Edge is at the second place
It has been almost nine months since the Chromium-based Edge was released, and market share has increased from 8.52 percent in August to 8.84 percent in September. The combined market share of Edge (8.84%) and Internet Explorer (3.88%) is 12.72 percent.
Exactly one year ago, Edge was 5.38 percent, which means that the user share has grown by 3.46 percent compared to the previous year. Of course, Edge is still way behind Chrome’s 69.94 percent, and it’s unlikely that Microsoft will get any closer to Google’s browser anytime soon .
