The only problem I have with statistics like this is that the figures can vary massively depending on the source, so in practice I think the best strategy is to look at your own web stats and decide what is important.

The new Edge browser seems like an improvement, so perhaps Microsoft is learning.

Yep.

Even in Germany (the MicrosoftLand), the IE rate dropped:

####2015

  1. Firefox 29.0%
  2. Chrome 25.2%
  3. Safari 24.8%
  4. Internet Explorer 7.5%
  5. Android Browser 3.4%

####2012

  1. Firefox 44,2 %
  2. Internet Explorer 24,4 %
  3. Safari 14,2 %
  4. Chrome 12,4 %

But in all honesty:

IE wasn’t a big problem the last 2 years, was it?

Way bigger concerns I have towards

###Firefox

Am curious about EDGE as well.

So far my experience of Edge is fairly positive, having tested it on various sites. It’s fast with a clean interface and not causing big headaches when designing like the old IE browsers. I don’t think it supports Woff2 fonts yet but it’s generally a worthwhile improvement on IE.

That’s what I expect(ed).

Microsoft can’t afford to play the big beast trendsetting anymore.
