    Edge and IE going away, MS embraces Chromium browser


    Microsoft Surrendering to Google Chrome Is No Surprise Given These Figures

    This is a good idea. I was wondering what will such a browser look like? I assume it will work like Chrome, but will it look like Chrome? And MS will be contributing to the Chrome base engine and has suggested Mozilla do the same thing.

    Really with open source code, everyone can own it and contribute improvements. It wont just be Google browser anymore. That is the beauty of open sourced code when many different groups unite as one to work together,

    And it will eliminate places like the EU suing companies for promoting their own browsers, 'unfair competition arguments', (bundling) which they often try to fine companies about.

    Is this a factual post or the thoughts of an individual?

    Maybe uptake of Chrome has been so high because (as I recall) it was often sneakily bundled into program installers for other applications.

    Perhaps Edge could do the same and have the 'Make Edge my default browser' option preselected.

    Apart from the inability to export and manage cookie files I really like Edge, and I haven't used anything but Edge since it was released.

    It's truly worry some that instead of being an option, Microsoft wants to surrender and try to reign by another monopoly of data mining (Chrome isn't exactly a virtue of privacy).

    Firefox is now the only option, because incompetent coders can't just make Edge suit the users needs, nor update it in a decent pace...

    Can we hope Microsoft doesn't end up selling themselves to Google? I have a dark sensation...

    I have IE, Chrome and FF installed, some sites still only work under IE. Though Chrome is my main browser, it has some issues and I often fallback to Firefox to bail me out.

    I was never an Edge fan so it's death is welcome in my book. If they can make it cross platform capable I may to a look at it again.

    Too bad I can't get Chrome in a FF wrapper but as Trust mentions I too have issues with each browser so I keep them all for those occasions. When I have to use First Data to make pay cards I use IE as both FF and Chrome bomb returning errors.

    If FF adopted the Chrome engine it would help websites unify coding and reduce problems. Right now if I try to look for drivers on Asus's site I can't see the listings using FF but the other browsers work fine.

    Its a good and right thing what MS is doing. They recognized they needed to do this and they are.
    Although I wonder if it will still be called 'Edge'.

    MS also markets your use data, so dont presume they dont and it is only Google doing that.

    These seem to be the first images of the "new Edge":
