Users Abandoning Microsoft Browsers At Record Rates

Data released earlier this week would suggest that IE and Edge “hemorrhaged user share at an astounding rate” while Chrome continued to grow. Firefox also saw a decline.

IE and Edge combined to account for 38.7% of the global user share — a stand-in for the percentage of all desktop and notebook PCs that ran those browsers — in May, according to U.S.-based analytics vendor Net Applications. May’s number for IE was down 2.7 percentage points from April, the largest one-month decline since Computerworld began recording browser data in 2005. In the last six months alone, IE — a bucket into which Net Applications also throws in Windows 10’s Edge — has lost 11.4 percentage points, an unprecedented decline for any browser at any point in the last 11 years.
