Microsoft Edge Chromium Browser Release Date Announced
Once a dominant market force for the web, Microsoft has committed a number of missteps in the space. The Redmond-based corporation debuted its Edge browser over three years ago.
It arrived with a fresh new look to replace IE. But, underlying issues with EdgeHTML, the code which powers it, continued to mount. So, Microsoft will gave-up and adapted Chromium to build its next browser.
The new version will include sync support for passwords, history, favorites, and settings across Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android. Additionally, the browser will feature the company’s new built-in tracking protection.
It likewise contains some new business tools, including searches for co-worker, office locations, floor plans, along with company acronyms.
Yusuf Mehdi, head of Microsoft’s modern life, search and devices Group, says:
“Today marks an important milestone as we head to the formal launch of Microsoft Edge and Bing for our commercial customers in January. As we enter the new year, we are excited to share more about how we will expand opportunities for developers, and later in the Spring even more for consumers.”
