Microsoft replaced Internet Explorer with Edge long ago but users continue to favour Internet Explorer especially when it comes to businesses and government organisations. According to the latest Netmarketshare numbers, almost 8% of the users still use Internet Explorer as opposed to the 4% who use Microsoft Edge.
