Microsoft launches its Chromium-based edge browser today



Microsoft will now provide its new Edge browser based on the Chromium engine for Windows 10 users . The updated Edge browser offers support for Chrome extensions, user profiles and faster internet surfing.

Once the update is implemented, all Windows users may need to upgrade to the updated Edge browser. According to a company blog post, only business users have the option to block this change.

In 2018, Microsoft announced it would switch to the Chromium engine for Edge. It's the same thing that powers Chrome, Opera, and Vivaldi.

In an interview with The Verge Joe Belfiore, corporate vice president of the company, said that CEO Satya Nadella was disappointed in “mixed reactions” in 201

7 toward Microsoft Edge and how Chrome as de facto Desktop browser was advancing. After discussing the advantages and disadvantages of changing the base in several meetings, the company decided to finally switch from its own engine to chrome.

According to Statcounter, Google Chrome is currently the top position in the browser market share. Edge, on the other hand, only holds 2.3 percent of the market.
