Microsoft Edge Voted Top Web Browser For Downloading Other Web Browsers
Tech · Apr 8, 2020 ·

U.S. - In an online poll, Microsoft Edge has been voted the top web browser for downloading other web browsers.

Microsoft's new web browser edged out the previous champion, Internet Explorer, for the title. The study found that as soon as you get a new computer, the first thing you do is download another web browser using the new and improved Microsoft Edge.

According to the study, the most popular searches on Microsoft Edge are "Download Google Chrome," "Download Firefox," "Download Brave," and "please give me any other browser but this one." Once the other browser is downloaded, Microsoft Edge is never used again except when you accidentally click on it or your grandmother borrows your computer. 

Although Microsoft Edge uses Chromium technology and isn't all that different from Google Chrome, people see that blue "E" and have horrible flashbacks of trying to use Internet Explorer back in the day. It also just "feels a little Microsofty" according to many users.

"We're proud to have the number one browser on the planet for downloading other web browsers," said a Microsoft developer. "We've worked hard to improve our technology so that you get lightning-fast speeds when you are looking for a different browser to use."

"We're number one! We're number one!" The developer tried to get the other developers to chant with him over webcam, but due to lag and latency issues, they chanted several seconds too late.
