Microsoft Edge is the fastest growing browser and it’s not even close

It’s safe to assume Microsoft has absolutely no regrets about gutting its Edge browser and rebuilding it around Chromium, the same underlying engine that powers Google’s own Chrome browser. Any doubts about the decision go right out the window when looking at the market share figures—Edge usage is growing at a phenomenal clip, and it is not inconceivable that it could one day challenge Chrome for the top spot.

That’s getting a little ahead of ourselves. But in the here and now, as first reported by WindowsLatest, Edge usage is second only to Chrome, according to Net Marketshare, having squeaked by Firefox. It’s a distant second, but what’s remarkable is the rate at which people are migrating over.
