Microsoft builds its own Chromium browser to replace the default on Windows 10. The software giant introduced its Edge browser three years ago, with a redesign to replace Internet Explorer and modernize the default browsing experience to compete with Chrome and others. While the modern look has paid for Edge, the underlying browser mouse (EdgeHTML) has struggled to continue with Chromium. Microsoft finally leaves and moves its default Windows 10 browser to Chromium.
Verge understands that Microsoft will announce its plans for a Chrome browser as soon as this week, to improve web compatibility for Windows. Windows Central first reported on these plans, which are code-coded Anaheim internally. We understand that there has been an increasing frustration in Microsoft’s Edge web compatibility issues, and businesses and consumers have driven the company to improve things.
Microsoft has only managed to go so far with EdgeHTML, though. Chrome is now the most popular browser on all devices, thanks to Android popularity and the increase of Chrome on computers and Mac. Chrome has entered the new IE6, and web developers have benefited their display engine to optimize their websites. Google has also created web services in Chrome, simply because it is often the first to adopt new web technologies, as engineers contribute to many web standards.
Microsoft’s rendering engine has fallen behind the results and the company is finally ready to admit this. It was a sign that Microsoft would adopt Chromium on Windows, because the company’s engineers have worked with Google to support a version of Chrome on an ARM-powered Windows operating system.
Adopting Chrom as the default Windows 10 for Windows 10 will quit Microsoft’s hostility to Chrome. Microsoft has regularly sent messages to Windows 10 users to try to convince them not to use Chrome, and Microsoft pulled Google’s Chrome installer from the Windows Store because it violated business policies. These principles restrict rival web browsers to using Microsoft’s own Edge Cleaner.
