Microsoft Edge remains in second place – but it’s still miles behind Chrome | #firefox | #chrome | #microsoftedge

For the second month in a row, Microsoft Edge has gained market share over Apple’s Safari, consolidating its position as the second most popular web browser, but it is still a distant runner-up behind Google Chrome.

The new data comes courtesy of StatCounter, which tracks the market share for web browsers (among other things). In their latest report covering April, Edge ticked up from 9.65% in March to 10.07% in April, while Safari – which dropped from second to third place in March – ticked up slightly as well, from 9.56% to 9.62%.

The biggest loser is still Mozilla Firefox, which dropped from 9.47% in February to 7.57% in March, with a slight tick back up to 7.87% in April. The behemoth running roughshod over all of these, of course, is Google Chrome, which saw a solid bump from 64.91% in February to 67.29% in March, almost entirely at the expense of Firefox, before ticking down slightly in April to 66.58%.

Microsoft’s Edge browser has made major strides in recent years to build its user base, especially after Microsoft rebuilt Edge around the Chromium framework, the same web engine that provides the foundation for Google Chrome.
