As part of today's Microsoft Edge Web Summit, it was revealed that the Edge web browser, which was first launched as part of Windows 10 in late July 2015, is now being used on over 150 million active devices.

While Edge is available on all Windows 10 devices, including Windows 10 Mobile and the Xbox One, Microsoft said that they prefer to check the number of monthly active devices that are using Edge to check its progress, rather than simply checking the number of downloads of the browser.

Microsoft also said that, according to Net Applications, the internet traffic numbers for edge have doubled just between January and February 2016. It used data from another service, StatCounter, to show that Edge is being used more than Google's Chrome when comparing the first seven months after each browser launched.
