    Google and Mozilla reacts to Chromium-powered Edge announcement

    “This just increases the importance of Mozilla’s role as the only independent choice. We are not going to concede that Google’s implementation of the web is the only option consumers should have. That’s why we built Firefox in the first place and why we will always fight for a truly open web.”

    I'm glad Mozilla is not conceding, but it's going to be hard for them to compete now that the Chromium Project is backed by many big tech companies (Google, Intel, Microsoft, etc.).

    Response from Kyle Alden, Microsoft’s Edge Project Manager.

    Microsoft Edge: Making the web better through more open source collaboration : Windows10

    Existing UWP apps (including PWAs in the Store) will continue to use EdgeHTML/Chakra without interruption. We don't plan to shim under those with a different engine. We do expect to offer a new WebView that apps can choose to use based on the new rendering engine.

    We expect to provide support for PWAs to be installed directly from the browser (much like with Chrome) in addition to the current Store approach. We're not ready to go into all the details yet but PWAs behaving like native apps is still an important principle for us so we'll be looking into the right system integrations to get that right.

    It's our intention to support existing Chrome extensions.

    Yesterday, Joe Belfiore announced that we will be adopting the Chromium open source project for our development of Microsoft Edge. We encourage you to check out Joe’s blog post for all the details.

    Alongside this announcement, we shared a document describing our open source principles and initial areas of focus. Today, we’ve posted a few more documents detailing our intent to contribute UIAutomation Provider Mappings to Chromium. We’ve also posted an update to the ChakraCore project on GitHub, clarifying the support status for that project.

    To learn more about what’s next for Microsoft Edge, sign up at the Microsoft Edge Insider page for updates and notifications, and stay tuned here at the Microsoft Edge Blog for details and announcements in the coming months.

    Wow, at such a young age:

    On the other hand... cut your losses and change direction...

    Quote from your blog link:

    Our goal is to do this in a way that embraces the well-established open source model that’s been working effectively for years: meaningful and positive contributions that align to long-standing, thoughtfully designed architecture, and collaborative engineering.
    It's a very strong endorsement for OSS. It's doubtful that you could unilaterally get the same for Windows 10, even in this forum...

    Test Chromium-based Microsoft Edge Browser


    The first preview builds of Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser are expected in early 2019 under the (rumored) codename Anaheim.

    This could be a hot and closely watched topic,
    You should probably create an official 'Sticky' thread of it!

    I added this to the first post for now.

    Whenever anything becomes available from Microsoft, I'll create a new sticky thread for it.

    I remember there was an older British forum member who was a huge fan of Edge *something like htconeuser, hctoneuser or something like that). I'd be interested in what he has to say about his beloved browser becoming a Chromium derivative.

    If it runs as clean and well as it does on my Android Tablet, I'll be impressed!!!
