Everyone Needs the New Microsoft Edge (Premium)


I know, it’s a bit early. But I’m calling it: Basing the new Edge on Chromium is the best decision that Microsoft’s made in years. This is a browser that everyone will want to use. Even those who are firmly invested in Google’s ecosystems.

With 66 percent usage share on desktop and 63 percent share on mobile, Google Chrome is the dominant web browser today. That desktop usage is particularly impressive since Chrome is not the default browser on either of the dominant PC platforms, Windows and Mac. This means that most desktop users are actually using the built-in browser only once, to install Chrome.
