According to a latest data from US Web Analytics firm Net Applications, Microsoft’s Edge and Internet Explorer continue to loose market share in the Browser category. The Market share for both the apps fell to 21% which is the largest decline since the start of the year.

Microsoft is currently facing the two main issues with its Edge browser is it release new features to the Edge browser twice a year and that is only for Windows 10 devices. Microsoft is competing with Android as the most successful OS on Mobile and it makes more sense for Microsoft to release its web browser on the mobile platform.

The decline of the Edge browser is mostly due to lack of extensions which are available for Chrome and Firefox users even though Edge is a competent browser for Windows 10 PCs. It now remains to be seen whether the Redmond Giant will be successful in increasing the Market share of its Edge Browser with the release of Windows 10 S on PCs.
