Microsoft's latest Edge browser based on the open-source Chromium browser is now the 2nd most popular browser in the world. Having launched just three months ago, it already has increased its userbase around the world to become more popular than even some long-lasting alternatives such as Mozilla Firefox, which is now the 3rd most popular option, showing that Firefox's userbase is decreasing in favor of the new Edge browser by Microsoft. The number one is still Google's Chrome which owns the majority of users at 68.5%, while Edge is at 7.59%. Firefox is present with a 7.19% market share, placing it just below Edge. It is impressive to see a new browser gain big userbase in such a short time, as alternative browsers often take years to gain even 2% of the market.
 
I've been using the new Microsoft Edge browser with Chromium since it was in beta. Now if only Microsoft could improve the BING search engine.

    Helps to be bundled with the latest Win10 build. Also helps that some news websites allow it to bypass soft paywalls... 


    Have water, will cool.

    I don't think it's fair to call it 'popular' when it's the forced default on all Windows o/s lol.
     
    Chrome is also a browser that many unsuspected people find installed on their system after having it come bundled with some unrelated software and they didn't bother to look at what they were clicking 'ok' to when installing... and then they switched to it because 'it's not Microsoft', and also because obviously Google pushes it incessantly.
     
    I use FireFox. I use it because I want to, not because it was forced on me by predatory methods.

    It is far better than Firefox and the OLD Microsoft Edge. The search engine is also great.
