Who knew Microsoft could have a second shot at the browser wars, back in the early noughties, Microsoft was kind of the browsers with Internet Explorer but as soon as Google Chrome came along, Google quickly took over. With Windows 10, Microsoft also shipped Edge a new browser at the time and until recently, when the web engine was moved to Chromium it wasn’t massively popular.

Bleeping Computer recently reported that Edge is now the second most popular web browser, just slightly above Firefox now. Chrome is by no doubts the most popular, at 68.5% market share, Edge is 7.6% and then Firefox is at 7.2%.

Now Edge is using the Chromium web engine, this should make some incompatibility issues go away with some websites, as most of the web is ‘Chrome focused’ anyway.
