IDG Contributor Network: Microsoft’s Chromium Edge Browser moves to beta: Who knew a browser could be exciting again?
[Disclosure: Microsoft is a client of the author.]
The new version of Microsoft Edge based on Chromium is moving to beta. It’s hard to look at this new and innovative browser and not think back on Internet Explorer. Times were very different back then, and IE was Microsoft’s answer to Netscape Navigator, the first dominant browser. Microsoft rode IE to almost 100% market share before they pulled resources from it, and it dropped largely into obscurity.
This slide was a painful lesson to watch, but the pain Microsoft experienced effectively saved the company. It also eventually set up the success they are having in the cloud today with Azure, and made them a much better company.
