Also, Edge Is Now Chromium-based. Thus It Gains the advantage Of Being Able To Use Extensions Available On The Chrome Web Store. This Increases Its Compatibility And Performance To The Same Level As Google Chrome Itself. This Might Be The Reason Why Firefox Seems To Lose Popularity.

This Is Still A Considerable Achievement For Microsoft Edge Which Has Recently Moved To Google’s Chromium Open-Source Engine Making It More Accessible To Non-Windows Devices.

Even Though Edge Is Leading Firefox In Terms Of Usage, But Still, The Lead Is Not Very Big. As Windows 10 Is Running On A Billion Devices And The New Edge Will Arrive At All Of Them Via Windows Update.
