By | September 1, 2015

Still not visible on the chart.

With more than 75 million of PCs running Windows 10, it looks like Microsoft Edge has finally received enough users to surpass at least one of the top 5 web browsers.

According to the latest report by Net Applications, Microsoft’s new web browser took 2.03% of the global market share pie and surpassed Opera, which has a market share of 1.27% (down by 0.09 point, from 1.36%).

As far as other browsers go, Internet Explorer is still in the lead with 52.17% but down from 53.27% (1.1 point decrease).

Google Chrome on the other hand will soon surpass the 30% mark but for now it shall enjoy the 29.49% share, up by 1.67 point from 27.82%.

If things keep going south for Firefox then it should too reach a milestone: 10% mark as it lost more market share, down from 12.03% to 11.68% (0.35 point decrease).

Lastly, Safari, still around the same 5% mark, in August it has lost 0.12 point, down from 5.09% to 4.97%.

That’s all for now, folks. Are you one of the 2%?

    Predicting that Firefox will go up 11% after Chrome ditching NPAPI. Really idiotic from Chromium team. Their are alot of sites and online video games that just work better with Npapi flash. Youtube cant even play 1080p html5 on my pc without stuttering. Html5 the future? for sure ,but its just not ready yet!
