    Microsoft Edge gains a little bit of market share in February


    Last Updated: 03 Mar 2016 at 08:05
    Back in December of 2015, we reported that Edge was losing market share in the US and worldwide, which didn’t bode particularly well for the browser’s future. While people are migrating to Windows 10, it seemed that they were holding on to their previous browsers (including Google’s Chrome). At least by one metric, however, Edge seems to have rebounded slightly in February

    Hi there.

    Until people like SKY TV can make SKY GO work on it (SKY is still using Silverlight) loads of people will have to stick with IE whatever the drawbacks are. (Actually SKY TV has only just about heard of Windows 7 never mind W10 !!! although it does work on W10).

    Perhaps Ms should have got more of these people involved from the start and make a Browser that actually can do things like using these online TV streaming services even if they do have cruddy DRM (Silverlight). Ms could work with these people so they could use better security systems instead of having to support basically two browsers going in opposite directions.

    One can use Chrome of course (that's how SKY GO works on Android devices) but I don't really want Chrome on a Windows PC.

    Incidentally any Linux users on these boards who have managed to get SKY GO to work on it -- should in theory be capable as Android itself is only another Linux distro so I suppose the trick is to get the security system from Chrome on Android into your Linux box.

    Cheers

    Not sure how you check, but are you sure it is using Silverlight and not the HTML5 player?

    I had to install Silverlight to get Netflix to run on any browser.

    Interesting, will have to try it

    Get Silverlight | Microsoft Silverlight

    according to MS
    *** Silverlight is not available in the Microsoft Edge browser, but is supported in Internet Explorer.
