NetMarketShare has published a new report on the global browser market. Perhaps the most important and interesting thing about it is the increase in the share of the proprietary Microsoft Edge browser. In October, it was 10.22%, while in September it was noticeably less – 8.84%, and at the end of last year – even 5.6%. In general, Microsoft’s efforts to plant Edge in different ways (both through a separate update and through ads in the Start menu) are not in vain. However, one cannot exclude the fact that users really liked the browser, after all, it has the same base as Chrome.
