Microsoft Reportedly Switching to Chrome — RIP Edge

Microsoft Reportedly Switching to Chrome — RIP Edge

This initiative could also pave the way for development of the new Chromium-based browser. The fact that Chromium is an open-source project might somewhat assuage that fear.

It might, however, signal a smoother relationship between Windows 10 and Chrome.

According to the reveal on Windows Central, this new browser (codenamed Anaheim) will replace Edge as the default browser on the Windows 10.

There's no official word on when an announcement will take place but The Verge is reporting that it could be as soon as this week. Meanwhile, Chromium is an open-source browser project powered by the Blink engine and it forms the basis for Google Chrome-the internet's most popular browser. That's why Microsoft throwing in the towel on EdgeHTML is a good thing. It certainly was universally more liked than Internet Explorer, with Microsoft Edge even making its way to Android and iOS.

Remember the browser wars? Microsoft Edge - and EdgeHTML - doesn't stand a chance, and Microsoft apparently is ready to admit defeat. Being a part of the Fast ring means that you get updates approximately every two weeks, which can be extremely buggy. Hence, Microsoft has chose to axe the Edge browser on Windows 10.

Data from Net Marketshare indicates this might be only a minor exaggeration, showing Edge was used for just 4.2 per cent of desktop web activity last month, compared to 65.57 per cent for Google Chrome. It is thought that Anaheim could be seen in the 19H1 update, so Windows Insiders may well get a look at the browser in the not-too-distant future.

Compare that to Google's 61 percent share and you can see why Microsoft may be more than a little concerned. Let us know down below!
