Microsoft Edge Finally Beats Safari In Usage

With its Edge browser, Microsoft can’t even come close to building on the market dominance of the former Internet Explorer, but at least the Redmond-based company can now celebrate significant symbolic success. For the first time, Edge has managed to gain a higher market share than Apple’s Safari. This makes Microsoft’s new browser the second most used desktop browser after Google’s Chrome, on whose codebase it is based. This is based on data from the statistics service StatCounter shows which measures the share of use of the browsers on approximately 2 million websites from around the world.

According to these figures, the Edge came in April after rising 0.46 percentage points to a share of 10.07 percent. Safari, on the other hand, remained fairly stable at 9.61 percent. This puts the two browsers far behind Google Chrome, which clearly dominates the market at 66.64 percent. In fourth place, the open-source browser Firefox, with 7.86 percent, can join the small group of browsers that actually realize a significant part of the use. The well-known Opera, for example, only has 2.44 percent.

Mobile takes place without Edge

A look at the mobile sector paints a completely different picture. Because there are very few users who use an alternative browser on their mobile platform. Market shares are split accordingly: Google Chrome, which is used as the default browser on most Android installations, is in the first place. He has a share of 62.87 percent. Apple can achieve a value of 25.35 percent with its Safari on the iOS systems. In third place is Samsung Internet, which is used as its own browser on Samsung’s Android devices and has a market share of 4.9 percent.
