windows 10 is now the operating system of choice for most Mozilla Firefox users, according to a new set of statistics provided by the company.

By the looks of things, Windows 10 managed to overtake Windows 7 in late October to become the leading desktop operating system for users of Mozilla’s browser.

Right now, Windows 10 is topping the charts with 40.696% share in theFirefox userbase, followed pretty closely by Windows 7 with 40.401%. Windows 8.1 is third and very far behind with 7.285%.

Why not using Microsoft Edge?

These stats are not at all surprising and they, in fact, reveal something that Microsoft’s isn’t going to like.

First of all, these numbers show that Windows 10 is indeed growing in terms of adoption worldwide, and overtaking Windows 7 in all charts is the best thing that could happen now. Windows 7 is projected to reach the end of support in January 2020 and Microsoft needs Windows 10 to be installed on as many PCs as possible in the meantime.

But on the other hand, the data also shows that many users don’t even care about Microsoft Edge. More than 40 percent of the Firefox users, which we already know are a lot of them out there, have decided to ignore Microsoft’s native browser and switch to a third party.

Microsoft has insisted for users to try out Edge browser, but judging from all the statistics released lately, nothing has worked. In fact, Microsoft Edge currently has a market share of around 4 percent, while Google Chrome, which continues to be the leading browser worldwide, runs on more than 65 percent of the desktop computers across the world.

In the meantime, Microsoft isn’t really in a rush to deliver updates for Microsoft Edge, so new improvements land alongside Windows 10 feature updates.
