Microsoft Replaces Edge With Chromium Based Browser This Wednesday

English

Microsoft replaces Edge with Chromium based browser this Wednesday.

Microsoft is replacing its Edge browser with the updated, Chromium-based version on January 15.

Windows 10 users will be automatically transitioned over.

Microsoft replaces Edge with Chromium based browser this Wednesday.

Microsoft announced the new Edge's launch date last month, but it wasn't clear that users would be pushed to the new version.

The browser will look and feel mostly the same as the existing Edge browser, with all the same proprietary Microsoft features, except for a slightly more Chrome-esque look.

Since the new Chromium Edge will be based off the same browser as Google Chrome, Edge will now support all the same extensions.

Last month developers were invited to port their Chrome extensions over to the Microsoft Store, with the company saying that most extensions could be transferred over without any additional work.

Edge is the default browser for all 900 million Windows 10 users, so there's obviously an incentive there to port extensions.
