Chrome simply unbeatable on the desktop, but Edge is catching up
The statisticians of StatCounter have once again analyzed and processed the current market share of browsers on various platforms. Accordingly, Microsoft can be pleased that the Edge browser continues its steady rise. Last month, the surfing software from Redmond was able to achieve a market share of 10.84% on the desktop – that’s 0.2 percent more than in the previous month.
This puts Edge firmly in second place in the list of the most popular browsers, which is still dominated by Google Chrome with a market share of 66.14 percent. However: Google’s browser suffered a significant drop of around 0.7 percent in July, while all other market participants made gains. Mozilla Firefox saw the strongest growth last month, with a plus of 0.28 taking the market share to 8.08%. Internet Explorer bravely defends itself against insignificance and keeps 0.75%.
Market shares of desktop browsers in July 2022:
- Google Chrome – 66.14% (-0.74)
- Microsoft Edge – 10.86% (+0.2)
- Apple Safari – 8.97% (+0.01)
- Mozilla Firefox – 8.07% (+0.28)
- Opera – 3.07% (+0.08)
For Germany, the picture is different on the desktop: Chrome follows with a market share of around 44 percent, followed by Firefox with 22.5 percent, Edge had ranked third in Germany with 14.5 percent in June, followed by Safari with around 11 percent and Opera with 6.6 percent.
Mobile everything is different again
In the mobile market, Google and Apple can further dominate the market with Android and iOS. Chrome comes in at just over 65 percent, Safari reaches just over 24 percent. Samsung can place its browser solution in third place with the sheer number of devices – but with just under 5 percent market share. Other providers do not even come close to the 2 percent hurdle.
