Microsoft Edge increased its market share by less than 2 percent in 2022


According to Statcounter, Apple Safari currently has 8.98 percent.

Statcounter has released its latest report that shared information about different browsers running on different platforms and operating systems. The general picture has not changed: Google Chrome is still the number one browser, with an unattainably high share, while Edge, Safari and Firefox are still fighting for second place.

Statcounter – whose data should only be treated as guidelines and not as 100% facts – determined Chrome’s share at the end of the year at 66.16 percent. Microsoft Edge is unsurprisingly the second most popular desktop browser, with a much more modest 10.99 percent share. Safari is the only non-cross-platform browser in the report, and its macOS exclusivity makes it harder for Apple to increase its current market share. According to Statcounter, Apple Safari currently has 8.98 percent. Firefox is fourth with 7.22 percent, and Opera is fifth with 3.29 percent, reports a Neowin.

Browser market share in the second half of 2022

The overall picture did not change much in the long term for the well-known actors. Google Chrome maintains a stable position of 65-70 percent with periodic ups and downs, and the same applies to Apple Safari with its 9 percent. In the case of Firefox, on the other hand, there was a significant decrease in the number of users, from around 10 percent at the beginning of 2020 to the current 7.22 percent.

Microsoft Edge shows that shaking up the desktop browser market is an extremely difficult task, even for Microsoft, as more than 1 billion active Windows devices can run Chromium-based Edge. Although Microsoft Edge’s share is steadily increasing, its annual growth is less than 2 percent. It’s hard to get users to switch from Chrome to Edge, which explains why Microsoft sometimes resorts to the not-so-user-friendly practices of forcing Edge in all sorts of annoying ways.
