Microsoft Edge Is No Longer The World’s Second Desktop Browser

The artificial intelligence-supported Bing and Edge browser seem to have not worked well for Microsoft. According to Statcounter’s data, Microsoft Edge has also lost its position.

After its investments in OpenAI, Microsoft initiated a serious transformation in both the Bing search engine and the Edge browser. The Edge browser, which has been updated with a deep integration with ChatGPT technologies, still has not reached the desired level. According to current data from Statcounter, Edge has also lost its position for a long time.

Blow to Edge from Apple

According to Statcounter’s April 2023 report, Microsoft Edge is no longer the second most popular desktop browser in the world. According to the latest data, Apple Safari has surpassed Microsoft’s Chromium-powered Edge browser. According to the published information, Safari increased its market share by 0.95 points compared to the previous month, reaching 11.87 percent. Edge, which has been struggling to surpass 11% for almost a year, fell to third place. In April, Edge lost 0.15 points, while Chrome increased by 0.36 points compared to the previous month to 66.13%. Here is the list of the most used browsers:

  • Google Chrome – 66.13%
  • Apple Safari – 11.87%
  • Microsoft Edge – 11%
  • Firefox – 5.65%
  • Opera – 3.09%

No Change in Mobile

On the mobile side of the market, nothing has changed. Chrome and Safari continue to hold almost 90 percent of all users. The Samsung Internet browser, the best of the rest, is in safe solitude with a share of just under 5 percent. Opera follows it with 1.88 percent. UC Browser is in fifth place with a share of 1.71 percent.

  • Google Chrome – 61.96%
  • Apple Safari – 26.85%
  • Samsung Internet – 4.8%
  • Opera – 1.88%
  • UC Browser – 1.71%
