Naija Tech news reported on December 3 that employees in Ireland had a dispute with their bosses over the Microsoft Edge browser. Citing technology media independent reports, many companies in Ireland require employees to use Microsoft’s Edge browser and Bing search engine as their first choice on the grounds of security, tracking and data flow , but the vast majority of users have rejected the company’s request.

According to statistics from Statcounter, in November 2024, the share of the Microsoft Edge browser in the global desktop market has exceeded 11%, firmly sitting on the throne of the world’s second-generation desktop browser. However, Statcounter data shows that the share of the Edge browser in Ireland is only 4%. While Chrome and Safari accounted for 54% and 32% respectively.

Naijatechnews understands that Irish regulators have forced Microsoft to differentiate the browser from Windows. However, Microsoft still has a very large influence in Irish enterprises. Many enterprises require employees to use Edge as their preferred browser by attaching exclusive software or services.

And Enterprise Ireland demanded that Microsoft Bing be set as the default search engine. But Bing’s market share in Ireland is also very low, accounting for only 3.4%. Google has a near-monopoly of the search market in Ireland at 92%, little changed over the past 12 months.

According to Statcounter, Apple is the most used operating system in Ireland, with 39% of all devices, including phones, tablets and computers. Google Android followed with 33 percent and Microsoft Windows was third with 26 percent.
