Unexpected news from Microsoft. Looks like their Edge browser didn’t live up to expectations, and Internet Explorer doesn’t even need to be mentioned. According to reliable sources, Microsoft is giving up the two browsers to build a new one based on Google’s Chromium technology.

Exactly, Microsoft will have a new browser built from scratch, completely different from Edge and IE, which will be based on Chromium engine instead of EdgeHTML. This is good news for everyone. The new browser is likely to come next year with a Windows update. Theoretically it will support the extensions available now on Chrome, so you can make the transition very easy.

Edge is still a good browser, but not enough to attract Chrome or Mozilla users.
