Microsoft Edge in second place below Chrome

Microsoft Edge surpasses Apple's Safari and is the second most popular desktop browser, according with Statcounter.

In March, Microsoft Edge reached 9,65% of the desktop market share, up from 9,61% in February, while Apple Safari fell from 9,77% to 9,56% in the same time period.

Obviously, Microsoft Edge would take second place as it is pre-installed on Windows 10 and Windows 11. It is also available on macOS and Linux devices.

Google Chrome remains well ahead with a market share of 67,29% for desktops at Statcounter (March). Microsoft Edge is not going to overtake Chrome any time soon, although both browsers are now Chromium-based and use the same release program every 4 weeks. Last week, both the Microsoft Edge 100 and the Google Chrome 100 went live, bringing minor updates and a major change that allows for three-digit versions.

Microsoft Edge has evolved a lot since the release of the original version of the browser along with Windows 10 almost seven years ago. The old Edge was released exclusively on Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile and was updated with new features twice a year. This of course made it impossible to compete with other browsers that used much faster traffic programs.

Microsoft has finally adopted the open source project Chromium and since then Microsoft Edge is now a stable alternative to Google Chrome. In recent months, however, more and more people are complaining that the browser is constantly taking on new features.

There should definitely be a fine line between adding features that are not so much needed, and focusing on the basics, such as performance and ease of use.
