A new list of market share among browsers shows that Microsoft Edge gains, Google Chrome still tops, Mozilla Firefox suffers
As you all know Microsoft made a surprising decision to pair its Edge browser with Google’s Chromium post it’s Windows 10 May 2020 aka 2004 update. The decision was quite tough for the company but has resulted in an expected change in the growth of the market share of the trending browsers. According to a new report based on the July 2020 month, its is found that Microsoft Edge has gained, Google Chrome still tops while the Mozilla Firefox suffers in the market shares.
Mozilla Firefox has been the second most used browser for a long time while now Microsoft Edge overtakes Firefox to gain the second spot on the list. Last month, Google Chrome increased its market share from 70.19% to 71.00%, while Microsoft Edge jumped from 8.07% to 8.46%. Meanwhile, Firefox declined from 7.58% to 7.27%.
Microsoft is making its Edge browser leaner and meaner to take on the hegemony of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. The company has revamped the browser and has introduced multiple features which the users have liked and also started to use it as their native browser. Microsoft also forced its Edge browser to launch at the startup which may have influenced the user to make it their native browser.

However, the Microsoft Edge browser has been at the center of controversy ever since it was launched. First, the new Edge browser has become the new default Windows 10 browser, replacing the legacy version for Windows 10.
