FAQ: Microsoft’s new Edge explained
More than a year after Microsoft waved the white flag, saying it would scrap Edge’s rendering engine and replace it with Blink, the engine that powers Google’s Chrome, the company has now delivered its reborn browser to the public.
But the result? That’s still up for grabs. Although there was little downside to the radical shift to Chromium — Internet Explorer had long been on legacy life support and Edge was at a near-death 4% user share — it’s vastly unclear whether the switch to Chromium will save Microsoft’s browser bacon.
