Microsoft discontinues Edge
 

 
image

For better or worse, Microsoft is discontinuing development of Edge, and creating a new browser, codenamed "Anaheim".

Microsoft is building its own Chromium browser to replace the default on Windows 10. The software giant first introduced its Edge browser three years ago, with a redesign to replace Internet Explorer and modernize the default browsing experience to compete with Chrome and others. While the modern look and feel has paid off for Edge, the underlying browser engine (EdgeHTML) has struggled to keep up with Chromium. Microsoft is finally giving up and moving its default Windows 10 browser to Chromium.

The Verge understands Microsoft will announce its plans for a Chromium browser as soon as this week, in an effort to improve web compatibility for Windows. Windows Central first reported on these plans, which are codenamed Anaheim internally. We understand there has been a growing frustration inside Microsoft at Edge’s web compatibility issues, and businesses and consumers have been pushing the company to improve things.

Microsoft has only managed to go so far with EdgeHTML, though. Chrome is now the most popular browser across all devices, thanks to Android’s popularity and the rise of Chrome on PCs and Macs. Chrome has turned into the new IE6, and web developers have been favoring its rendering engine to optimize their sites. Google has also been creating Chrome-only web services, simply because its often the first to adopt emerging web technologies as its engineers contribute to many web standards.

Microsoft’s rendering engine has fallen behind as a result, and the company is finally ready to admit this. There were signs Microsoft was about to adopt Chromium onto Windows, as the company’s engineers have been working with Google to support a version of Chrome on an ARM-powered Windows operating system.

Adopting Chromium as the default rendering engine for Windows 10 will end Microsoft’s hostility towards Chrome. Microsoft has regularly pushed notifications to Windows 10 users to attempt to convince them not to use Chrome, and Microsoft pulled Google’s Chrome installer from the Windows Store, because it violated store policies. Those policies restrict rival store browsers to using Microsoft’s own Edge rendering engine.

Just default to chrome and take the L. People don’t trust Microsoft browsers. Chrome is unmatched because of those password and app saves across devices.

Microsoft is trash, I don't understand. They can hardly give you decent anything.


Try and use IE/Edge...... they're trash! I HAVE to go download Chrome even if I don't want to.

At work IE is the default browser and it don't work with half the web apps they use....have to copy and paste the link to Chrome lol

I want to play a video file on the Microsoft Film & TV app.... the audio is out of fu*king sync.

Microsoft update is annoying as fu*k at times...

Now they wanna add fu*king ads in the start menu... fu*k off.

Microsoft are clowns, they got the perfect opportunity to have mf use their service and fu*k it all up with subpar bullsh*t.... everybody who uses Chrome had to go through IE/Edge/Bing first lmao.

This is just speculation so far FYI. No one really knows the purpose of the this "Anaheim" project.

Edge & Firefox does the same thing though. Besides, I'll take LastPass to sync my passwords across devices, browsers and apps before Google.

It blows my mind that people say they have trust issues with any company...but willing use a Google product They may produce some good software, but trust...naaaaaaaaah.

That being said, Firefox Quantum > ____________

Oh and Edge is easily the best is the best for touch.

Best Microsoft product they've ever made, I remember many days in my yute watching seasons of Boondocks and listening to mad albums without needing a single charge. And the sh*t was half the price, or more, of the ipod variants.

I still have the OG thick a.ss one and the smaller version.. They still work and I take them on travel trips.. Just something about being able to listen to a big chunk of my collection that you can't get on streaming.. Think its about 200gb+ of music, most of my sh*t you can't get on streaming platforms.. and when you up in the air with no data its the best thing.

Microsoft is super trash at this point, Office used to be there go to product, but now that's trash too, most people just use Office Libre or Google Docs. At this point Office 365 and SharePoint keep them a float. Opensource FTW.

I tried to give edge a shot. It didn't support extensions. By the time it did it was to late.

I'll be willing to try what's next if it can be faster and less resource intensive than chrome.
