Microsoft Edge didn’t stop Chrome from gaining more users

The stable version of Microsoft Edge also faced a sharp downfall. Its market share came down to 5.36% in May.

Microsoft is currently working on developing its Chromium-based Edge so as to turn it into a strong opponent against Chrome.

New features are regularly being introduced and the browser will soon be available on Windows 10 and macOS.

Mozilla Firefox also suffered the same fate. Firefox is considered a strong competitor of Chrome because it uses less RAM compared to Google’s browser.

But Firefox also experienced a decline from 10.23% to 9.46%. Moreover, Internet Explorer fell to 6.71% in May. Previously, its market share was recorded at 7.49%

We all know that market share is never constant and it fluctuates with each passing day. Let’s see if Edge manages to steal from market share percentages from Chrome in the coming months.
