Google Chrome market share drops, still not leaving any good news for Microsoft Edge

03 December 2018 3

While Google Chrome continues to have its dominance in the web browser market, Microsoft Edge was improving at a snail’s pace last year. Though numbers out for this year by a popular market analyst firm NetMarketShare shares how popular web browsers experienced a decline in the market share. Google Chrome saw a drop of market share to 65.57 percent last month though it goes without saying that it’s still the most popular web browser out there, running on 7 out of 10 devices in the world.

Then comes the Mozilla Firefox which dropped to 8.96 percent from 9.25 percent within a month. Likewise, Microsoft Edge usage dropped from 4.28 percent to 4.22 percent. Besides Microsoft's aggressive approach to promote its Edge browser, the tech giant still faces a hard time to penetrate its web browser into the market considering how the first two options (Chrome and Firefox) still remains on the top list of the PC users.​​

While the market drop for Chrome and Firefox should be a good news for Microsoft Edge, it won’t affect Microsoft’s product until they get to grow its share as well, which doesn’t seem to be the case. In fact, Microsoft over pushed its browser to the PC users globally which somehow backfired where PC users felt Microsoft was being too salesy.

Which web browser do you prefer using? Let us know in the comment section below.
