The old version of Edge will be removed with an upcoming update.
Microsoft will be removing the old version of its Edge browser through an upcoming Windows 10 update that’s rolling out this April. This will effectively move most of its Windows 10 user base to the updated Edge browser that was built in Chromium.
While the new Edge browser uses the same engine as Chrome, it also includes exclusive features like collections that let you access information while you are surfing. The original Edge browser came with Windows 10, and while it did get good reviews from users, it still struggled for dominance in a browser market that’s now mostly occupied by Google Chrome.
That’s the total opposite from a few years ago, where Microsoft’s own Internet Explorer is used by nearly every computer running Windows. Despite multiple updates and vulnerabilities to the browser, it still became the top choice for most users and developers. Fast forward to today and you now have multiple choices on what browser you want to use on your computer.
