Microsoft Edge Switches To Open Source Chromium Project
Microsoft confirms that Edge will switch to Chromium

Google is the most prominent user of the Chromium open source code, which is the base of the Chrome browser.
Ultimately, we want to make the web-experience better for many different audiences.
In this way the all-new version of the tech giant Microsoft's Windows, of course, Windows Lite will only have access to the tech giant Microsoft's own store (Microsoft Store) and will be focused on apps for education, an area where the tech giant Google's Chrome OS has been conquering its space. The revamped Edge will get much more frequent updates, too.
Microsoft framed its decision to use Chromium as Edge's rendering engine as the latest example of its commitment to supporting open source projects. A Chromium version of the Edge browser is also reaching previous Windows platforms, including Windows 7 and Windows 8.
It has been a very long time since Microsoft launched an official browser for the Mac (over 15 years!), and here we are in 2018 and looking ahead to a bright, Microsoft Edge future. EdgeHTML wasn't helping Edge along, and Microsoft believes rebuilding it using Chromium will give it the push it needs to compete with Google Chrome and Firefox.
While Microsoft hasn't explained technical details yet, it would appear it will swap out EdgeHTML for Chromium's Blink engine, and possibly Chakra for V8. Also important for some, it will continue to provide the Microsoft Edge service-driven understanding of legacy IE-only sites - enabling continued use of various corporate web apps and so on. Net Applications pegs Edge's share of the browser market at 4.34 percent, while Stat Counter has it even lower at just 2.15 percent. For years, Microsoft has been marketing the product as a competitive alternative to Google's Chrome. Belfiore says a preview build for developers will start rolling out in early 2019. Vulnerabilities in the open source project may affect a broader set of browsers and innovations developed for Safari and Firefox may not be adopted elsewhere. And, finally, Microsoft hopes that its participation in the Chromium project will make other Chromium-based browsers better on Windows devices. "As part of this, we intend to become a significant contributor to the Chromium project, in a way that can make not just Microsoft Edge - but other browsers as well - better on both PCs and other devices". "We look forward to working with Microsoft and the web standards community to advance the open web, support user choice, and deliver great browsing experiences". "Microsoft is officially giving up on an independent shared platform for the internet", said Mozilla CEO Chris Beard in a blog post. He denies that he is being melodramatic with this claim because, he explains, Chromium is one of the ways in which Google controls what we are able to see online.
