Microsoft Edge Embraces Chrome, Will Arrive On Mac


It was reported a few days ago that Microsoft could be building a Chrome-based browser for Windows 10. The company today announced that it’s embracing the Chromium open source project for its web browser. This means that Microsoft’s browser will now be built on the same web rendering engine that Google uses for its popular Chrome browser. The company says it will become a significant contributor to the Chromium project which will make other browsers based on this engine better as well.

“People using Microsoft Edge (and potentially other browsers) will experience improved compatibility with all web sites, while getting the best-possible battery life and hardware integration on all kinds of Windows devices,” writes Corporate Vice President for Windows, Joe Belfiore.

This change will entirely be under the hood as Microsoft isn’t doing away with its web browser or the Edge brand.
