DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that Microsoft Edge has become the default browser for Windows in 2016? Internet Explorer used to be the system's default browser since Windows 95. Back in 1990, Microsoft won the first browser war against Netscape. This made Internet Explorer one of the best browsers during that period. Yet it received negative backlash for using third-party technology and substandard security measures. In 2013, Windows formed a coalition of organizations with Facebook, Google, and Intel. The coalition aims to provide a more accessible connection to the internet. This move will also broaden its hold on the developing world. With the help of Google, will also decrease the prices for internet access to make it more accessible to all.

Google Chrome is now considered as one of the best and fastest browsers even for Windows devices. At the end of 2018, Chrome attained 68% worldwide usage for desktop and a 61% market share for all platforms. Its popularity surged and brought the expansion of other "Chrome" projects into production. It has also acquired more than 2 billion active installs, and that was back in 2016! These statistics have made Google Chrome one of the best and fastest browsers for 2018.
