WebAIM Screen reader user survey #9 result 2021

Hai all,

I was going through the WebAIM screen reader user survey #9 results
and comparing it with #8 result.

Usage of NVDA and Voiceover screen readers reduced to 30.7% and 6.5%
from 40.6% and 12.9%.
Usage of Firefox browser has come down to 16.5% from 27.4%.
Chrome became the most commonly used browser with NVDA screen reader
replacing Firefox browser.
The percentage of NVDA with Firefox reduced to 9.7% from 19.6%.

Can anyone help me with any blogs or articles which is discussing
about this #9 result? I couldn't find such links or discussions.
What surprised me and want more to understand is
Why people are moving to NVDA with Chrome from NVDA with Firefox?
JAWS with chrome or JAWS with Edge , which is the best tool
combination to test with ?
Do we need to completely stop testing in IE browser as the percentage
came down to 3.3% from 10.9%?
when it comes to mobile, the VoiceOver usage percentage is increasing
year by year and now it became 71.5% VoiceOver users and 29.1%
TalkBack users. Is it because more than the half of the respondents
are from North America?

Really looking forward to hear from you.
Thanks in advance
