The new browser will now be Chromium-based.
Microsoft didn’t have that much luck with its Microsoft Edge browser that debuted with Windows 10, but that doesn’t mean that they’re giving up. As a tease for the revamped version of Edge, Microsoft has unveiled a new logo to signal the change.
It’s a simple new look that comes with blue and green accents. This may be a way for Microsoft to tell everyone to forget the old Edge (or the older Internet Explorer browser) and welcome the new Chromium-based browser.
At the moment, the new Microsoft Edge is still under beta with no word on when it will be releasing. The new Edge browser was built from the ground up using Google’s own Chromium technologies that currently power the Chrome browser. This was done to appeal more to users and even web developers, in which Google Chrome is a prioritized platform.
Revealed last December. Microsoft said that moving to Chromium will help “create better web compatibility for our customers, and less fragmentation of the web for all web developers.”
