Microsoft wants no longer go alone with its Edge browser. Earlier this month, the company said it will move its Edge browser to Google's open-source Chromium software. Web developers are likely to applaud the change because they do not want to test their software on many platforms. For the rest of us, it means that Google's dominance of the Web only grows with a less independent technology platform.
It's interesting to see what the new Edge browser wants to look like and even support Chrome extensions. And how soon a version of Edge shows up for MacOS.
Microsoft Edge Insider Program
Microsoft expects to release a preview of Build in early in 2019. If you're eager to give it a whirl, you can not join the Microsoft Edge Insider Program , Just give Microsoft your email and you'll be on the new Chromium-based edge browser.
