Microsoft is Rebuilding Edge Browser using Chromium for Windows & macOS
07 December, 2018, 13:26 | Author: Rafael Roberts
Microsoft expects to have a first preview build ready in early 2019; this suggests that Microsoft started work on migrating Edge to the new code-base for some time already. "Today we're announcing that we intend to adopt the Chromiumopen source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility for our customers and less fragmentation of the web for all web developers", said Microsoft Corporate VP Joe Belfiore. Not only this, but the company will also be able to contribute to the Chromium project - a major move from Microsoft to contribute to the open source community.
With the launch of Windows 10, Microsoft tried to build a new browser that was based on their Trident rendering engine that we now know as Edge.
As was reported on Thursday by TechCrunch, Microsoft has confirmed it is making some important changes to its web browser, Edge, and that these changes will facilitate a lot of things - like bringing it to the Mac. Our philosophy of greater participation in Chromium open source will embrace contribution of beneficial new tech, consistent with some of the work we described above.
If you're the type who likes to get eyes on beta versions of software before it hits the masses, there's also an Insider Program for the Edge browser. All hail the new Edge based on Google's open-source Chromium code. "People using Microsoft Edge (and potentially other browsers) will experience improved compatibility with all web sites, while getting the best-possible battery life and hardware integration on all kinds of Windows devices", Microsoft added.
Does Microsoft's new direction with Edge mean Edge finally will be available from the Microsoft Store? So Edge will likely look more or less as it does now but with certain differences based on the new engine.
In this way the all-new version of the tech giant Microsoft's Windows, of course, Windows Lite will only have access to the tech giant Microsoft's own store (Microsoft Store) and will be focused on apps for education, an area where the tech giant Google's Chrome OS has been conquering its space.
Current Edge users don't need to do anything, as the switch isn't happening very soon. And, of course it will save Microsoft resources. As far as the users are concerned, nothing really is going to change on the surface (no pun intended) and Edge will continue to operate as before, just with better compatibility. Even though Microsoft officials have said over the years that their plan was to make Edge a Store app, it sounds like Microsoft intends to make it available as a download for non-Windows 10 platforms and not as a Store app for consistency's sake.
Instead, it's about making the browser better. It's also an acknowledgement that Chrome is basically the standard in browsers now, a position Microsoft hasn't held in a long time.
