Windows 10 Down, Windows Mobile Out, IE/Edge Browser Share Falling, Microsoft Failing At Consumer
Windows 10’s usage share fell last month according to NetMarketShare, no doubt the delayed shock of Microsoft’s termination of free upgrades. Windows Mobile sales have all but stopped and Microsoft’s share of the browser market is heading towards 25% before the end of the year – ten months ago it was at 50%. Meanwhile Bing’s share of search has fallen below 10%, a reduction of 40% from its peak in January this year.
These aren’t good numbers for Microsoft and they are almost across the board indications that it has failed to engage the consumer. Aside from Xbox, which is showing a bump in sales, Microsoft is slowly being erased from consumer’s lives.
