Microsoft Edge (Now Built on Chromium)


MS is throwing in the towel on EdgeHTML. This new Edge will also be built for Windows 7 and 8, as well as macOS.


Well, this should make life a bit easier for web devs. And maybe make some people actually use Edge…
Of course, what makes or breaks browsers for pro use is the plugin infrastructure. And I don’t see how Edge could even get close to Chrome or Firefox here.


Man, I was just starting to like edge.


Windows Phone - not enough apps
Microsoft Edge - not enough plugins
Microsoft Windows - ???

Where are they going to go next?
