Microsoft Edge Browser to use the Chromium Rendering Engine

Anyone here use Microsofts Edge browser?

Some important changes are happening, Microsoft will be ditching their EdgeHTML rendering engine and building the browser from Chromium instead, which will include the use of Chrome extensions, this also means the browser will be available on all platforms.

I am looking forward to seeing what they come up with.

Re: Microsoft Edge Browser to use the Chromium Rendering Engine

I've tried it and i like how you can install extensions from the Chrome store as well as Microsoft store, i think it has huge potential for reducing Chromes market lead unless they somehow mess it up and i will consider changing from Firefox if they get it right to my liking.

Re: Microsoft Edge Browser to use the Chromium Rendering Engine

I use Edge from time to time. I've quite liked it so far. Although I'm no fan of Chrome (the UI irritates me, as does the fact Flash Player is built in), I think the Chromium engine is good, and a standard rendering engine is a good thing, as long as all the browser manufacturers who use it contribute to it.

Personally, I use Safari or Vivaldi. Safari uses a webkit engine (Chromium's Blink engine is a fork of Webkit). Vivaldi uses the Blink engine. I'm glad Edge is switching.

I think using a standardised engine is a good thing. While HTML has always been a standard, some browser manufacturers tended to try and get an advantage by altering their implementation of HTML. As a web designer, it's a massive pain in the butt to ensure your site works well on multiple browsers. As a user, it can be a massive pain to put up with a site that doesn't work well in a given browser, or requires a given browser.

By implementing a standard engine, the browser manufacturers are free to innovate where they can do most good. In the user interface.
