Microsoft’s Edge browser recently overtook Firefox as the most popular Chrome alternative, according to NetMarketshare stats. Chrome still has the lion’s share of the market with over a 70 percent share, and Firefox isn’t that far behind, but Microsoft’s contender has been slowly gaining popularity.
How does that math work? Chrome accounts for 70% of the market, leaving 30% for everyone else. If Edge has overtaken FireFox, that means that Edge could account for 15.1% and FireFox 14.9%. However, there are dozens of other browsers out there, including Safari, Opera, Brave, Vivaldi, NetFront, and the like. So there’s no way FireFox can have 14.9% because it’s mathematically impossible.
So back to that problematic statement:
Chrome still has the lion’s share of the market with over a 70 percent share, and Firefox isn’t that far behind …
The gap between 70% and whatever number FireFox might have is far behind. Very, very, very far behind. 🙄Microsoft outlines recent Edge browser improvements
