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


Analytical agency StatCounter found which browser was used by the majority of people around the world in April of 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 slow performance. Later, Microsoft switched the browser to the Chromium engine; which made the app more popular and compatible with most Chrome extensions.

About two years have passed since the transition from Edge to Chromium. Obviously, this decision 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 lower than Google Chrome’s 66.64% share. However, the Microsoft browser managed to reach the second line of popularity; overtaking Apple Safari, which occupied the third position in the ranking with a share of 9.61%. The top five also include browsers Mozilla Firefox with a 7.86% share and Opera with a 2.43% share.
