Here are the most popular browsers in the world in April 2022

Analytical agency StatCounter found out which browser was used by the majority of people in the world in April this year. And we will talk about both desktop solutions and versions for mobile devices.

The original Microsoft Edge browser, built on its own EdgeHTML engine and released in 2015, was not popular due to various compatibility issues and not very fast performance. Later, Microsoft switched the browser to the Chromium engine; which made the application more popular and compatible with most Chrome extensions.

About two years have passed since the transition of Edge to Chromium. Obviously, this move by Microsoft was correct; since the desktop version of the browser took over 10% of the market in April. Edge’s global adoption rate was 10.07% in April, according to StatCounter.

Of course, this is still significantly less than Google Chrome‘s 66.64% share. However, the Microsoft browser managed to rise to the second line of popularity; overtaking Apple Safari, which was in the third position in the rating with a share of 9.61%. The top five also includes Mozilla Firefox browsers with a 7.86% share and Opera with a 2.43% share.
