The new Microsoft Edge browser has grown significantly in market share since moving to the Chromium kernel. Google Chrome remains the top spot with 67.27 percent, according to the latest NetMarketShare data, but Microsoft Edge is no whereby Microsoft Edge is from second-ranked Mozilla Firefox.

Data for February showed that Mozilla Firefox was hit hard by the new Microsoft Edge browser, with a share of 7.57 percent and 7.39 percent, respectively.
If the trend continues over the past two weeks, it’s clear that the second-place market for desktop browsers will be stolen by Edge, and Firefox is likely to drop into third place next month (or even later this month).
In February, Chrome’s market share edged up from 66.93% to 67.27%. Given that Edge is also pushing new at this time, the results are somewhat out of our medical care.
Firefox’s situation was somewhat awkward, with its share falling from 8.12% to 7.57%. Edge, on the other hand, edged up from 7.02% to 7.39%.
Clearly, consumers are quite critical of The Chromium Edge. As the default browser option for the Windows 10 operating system, it also dabbles in the Windows 7/8/8.1 and even macOS platforms.
As for the Linux version that was promised early, it is also expected to appear in the near future. It’s just that for a long time to come, it’s assumed that no one will be able to challenge Google Chrome’s market dominance.
