Microsoft might not dominate the Browser market but the company sure does know how to satisfy users. Earlier today, Microsoft surpassed Google Chrome in terms of store ratings on both Android and iOS. The news was shared by Vishnu Nath, Head of Program Management, Microsoft Mobility on Twitter.
What a proud day for our #MicrosoftEdge on Android team. We just crossed a 4.4 play store rating – this passes even Chrome on Android (we already ranked ahead of Chrome on iOS too). Thank you fans!!! We are always working to improve! #TeamBlueE @MWautier @JisunShin @kj_sax pic.twitter.com/RWzIhdbGWU

On iOS, Microsoft Edge beats Mozilla Firefox by a narrow margin. Not only this, Edge is also ranked 8th in Utilities on the iTunes Store.
As of today, Microsoft Edge carries an average rating of 4.4 on the Google Play Store and is rated 4.2 on the iTunes Store. Microsoft is working hard to improve the browser and their efforts are paying off. If you own Android or iOS device then make sure to check out Microsoft Edge on Play Store and iTunes Store respectively.
