      <p>Why would they be happy? Developing mobile keeps Microsoft in the ARM game and it isn’t like it’s costing them much. </p>

    <p>Pity no one&nbsp;asked Nudella about the MS browsers hemorrhaging users. It’s absolutely shocking for MS, Edge has gained less than 1% over the past six months while IE is simply withering on the vine…&nbsp;</p>
    <p>So what about Internet Explorer and Edge? Internet Explorer continued its fall. The browser fell from a usage share of 43.82% in January 2016 to 21.66% in December 2016. ( Credit to GHacks&nbsp;)</p>
    <p>The browser’s usage share halved in that time. While Microsoft may have hoped that its Edge browser would gain the bulk of the share, that is apparently not the case.</p>
    <p>Edge continues to go nowhere this year. While it managed to jump from 3.07% to 5.21% this year, this is nothing to brag about considering that Microsoft is pushing the browser quite aggressively on Windows 10.</p>
    <p>The past six months have been extremely telling, with Edge rising a mere 0.12% in that time.</p>
    <p>StatCounter’s statistics tell a different story this time. The service recorded Internet Explorer’s usage share at 15.95% in January 2016, and at 9.66% in November 2016. That’s not even half of what Net Market Share recorded for the browser.</p>
    <p>The situation is even more grim for Edge which StatCounter saw at 1.82% in January, and at 3.19% in November 2016.</p>
