Microsoft to kill off its Edge browser

Report: Windows Lite is Microsoft’s long-awaited answer to Chrome OS Microsoft is reportedly building a Chromium-based browser to replace Edge

Naming aside, it's also not clear whether the Anaheim browser will keep any of Edge's user interface or opt for a complete redesign. The next time you come across a video using the AV1 codec, as a file or on the web, Windows 10 will be able to play the video using the Movies & TV app or in Microsoft Edge.

In the latest version of Windows 10, website Petri found information on "Windows Lite".

Adding to speculation about this new broswer is the fact that Microsoft engineers were recently spotted contributing code to Chromium. Meanwhile, Chromium is an open-source browser project powered by the Blink engine and it forms the basis for Google Chrome-the internet's most popular browser. There could also be a chance that Microsoft will retain the Edge browser alongside the new browser, similar to how Internet Explorer's existence after the incoming of Edge.

Since Microsoft rolled out the stable build of Windows 10 back in 2015, it started laying emphasis on its new default web browser - Microsoft Edge. Honestly, we can't wait to see what Microsoft could do with the Chromium engine.

Now, according to a report from WindowsCentral, it's possible that Microsoft may be dropping support for Edge entirely, replacing it with a Chromium-based browser instead. While that may be the case, we don't think that this new browser will "replace" Edge, we think it is Edge.

The success of Google's Chromebook hardware and Chrome OS software wasn't an inevitability, but the ease of use they afford ended up allowing Google to carve out a niche in a very crowded PC marketplace. Being a part of the Fast ring means that you get updates approximately every two weeks, which can be extremely buggy.

Following rumors reported by Windows Central, sources that The Verge has spoken to claim that Microsoft will announce the new Chrome-based browser later this week. That's good news for anyone out there who wants to browse the web with the power of Chrome but doesn't want to actually use Chrome to do it. Let us know down below!
