MIcrosoft Edge Passes 1 Million Downloads - On Android

Microsoft Edge browser for Android has been out of the "preview" stage and has been available to everyone for just a little over a week. The crazy thing is that Google's download tracker shows that it has over a million downloads. I'm not sure why. Granted, Chrome is not the perfect mobile browser, but it's built in and it just works. I'm not sure how many people love Edge enough to make the effort to download a different browser, but apparently a million people do. Unless Microsoft is gaming the system... Hmmmm....

The number comes from the Google Play Store's own download tracker. Edge is also currently listed as the third most-popular free app in the "Communication" category on Google Play. The next milestone of five million downloads will take a little longer to reach, but hitting a million downloads a week out from launch, and two months since initially hitting preview, isn't too shabby.
