Microsoft Edge has surpassed Apple Safari to grab second place after Google Chrome in the market for desktop browsers, according to latest data.
Edge is now the only browser from Microsoft since Internet Explorer was discontinued, and it is succeeding well in the market. Microsoft Edge now has a 10.84 percent global market share, according to data collected by Statcounter . In the month preceding June, Edges growth was 0.52 percent. After Microsoft formally stated that Internet Explorer would be discontinued after 27 years of operation, this growth occurred.
Despite tremendous growth, Microsoft Edge continues to lag well behind Chrome. With a 66.19 percent market share, Google’s browser is currently the market leader. Apple’s Safari, with a market share of 8.94%, is in third position. The next places are occupied by other browsers like Firefox, Opera, and Internet Explorer.

Naturally, these statistics pertain to desktop browsers; Microsoft Edge has no place on this list of mobile browsers. Google Chrome has a 65.16 percent market share in mobile browsers, according to Statcounter data. Samsung Internet has a 4.86 percent market share, and Apple Safari has a 24.22 percent market share.
Microsoft has been working hard to improve the performance of the Edge browser and introduce new features since Internet Explorer was discontinued a few months ago. For instance, the business greatly simplified the process of switching between personal and professional profiles in the Edge browser. Additionally, it made several adjustments to Edge’s progressive web app (PWA) ecosystem.

Therefore, it is more likely that Microsoft will devote more resources to the development of Edge in order for it to outperform Apple Safari. It appears impossible to compete with Google Chrome, but Microsoft can at least keep up with Safari.
