If we look at our past then it is clearly visible that the Microsoft browser (IE) was the King of a market with some innovative competitors. Later, the bet of the tech giant Google and the developers’ community Mozilla began to be strong and, as expected, the web browser Google Chrome down Internet Explorer, hence, remaining today as the most popular browser.

But the dropout rate of Internet Explorer and Edge Browsers is worrying! if it meets the data of the September month.

According to the Net Applications, there are increasing users who abandon Microsoft’s browser. As it can be seen from the following chart, in December 2015 Internet Explorer and Edge Browsers was used by about 800 million users worldwide, a figure that dropped to 506 million users in September 2016.

Compared to August 2016, Internet Explorer and Edge Browsers recorded in September least 33 million users.

If the trend continues, then Internet Explorer and Edge Browsers will lose about 25% of the market share in just one year. According to information from ComputerWorld, no other browser will have lost as many users as quickly, with the exception of Netscape Navigator in the 90s.

Despite all the innovations, the Edge has been unable to attract users even having enough interesting features. According to Microsoft itself, the Edge is the best browser for video and even can completely beat the Google Chrome in battery testing, but the truth is that users continue to flee from Microsoft’s browsers currently.
