Microsoft Edge (which is now Chrome)

It's no secret that Microsoft is hard at work developing Edge on the Chromium engine. And so, to journalists fromThe vergemanaged

take a look at what the updated browser looks like and some of its functions.

What are the differences from the old Edge?

Largely. "Under the hood" is now Chromium, on which almost all modern browsers are built. The company decided to abandon its own EdgeHTML and take the path of least resistance.
The new engine brings with it a bunch of features, the main thing isof which – native support for all Google Chrome extensions. It is also believed that most websites work much better on Chrome than on Firefox, Edge or any other browser. The only question is optimization: can Microsoft keep the engine from eating up RAM?

What are the differences from Chrome?

They are practically absent.It is noticeable that the browser's interface is much more similar to Chrome than to Edge. The corporation is trying to give it the familiar minimalistic look of Windows 10. Most of the standard “features” Edge is still missing from the updated product.

And how is he in business?

In The Verge noted that the browser seems very nimble. Quickly starts, loads sites and content at high speed.

On the other hand, some important functions were missing: for example, data synchronization from a third-party browser does not work completely - only bookmarks are transferred.

When released?

Not yet known. Since the development of the browser is no longer tied to the update cycles of Windows 10 itself, the release to “people” can occur at any time.
