Last month, Google Chrome's market share dropped from 67.88% to 65.64%, but despite this, it is still the first choice for most users on the desktop.
Mozilla Firefox is still a runner-up, accounting for 10.23%, followed by Internet Explorer 11, which no longer receives new features, accounting for 7.49%.
The reason behind the decline in Google Chrome’s share is little known, but it’s a possible explanation for users to try out the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge and stick with it.
Microsoft is migrating from EdgeHTML to Chromium for Microsoft Edge, and it is expected that the browser will not only beWindowsRun on 10 and run on Windows 7 and MacOS. Last month, Microsoft released the first preview version, and it is expected to launch a beta version in the next few weeks. But there is no news on the stable version, but it is expected to go live later this year.
While the preview version of Microsoft Edge should not be used as the master browser, many users have already switched, mainly because the application has run quite smoothly on Windows 10.
Obviously, once Edge releases the official version and releases it on other platforms, the impact on Google Chrome's market share may be even greater, so the battle for the browser market will enter a new and interesting phase.
