Microsoft Edge was originally just a replacement for Internet Explorer but Microsoft threw out the backend and rebuilt Microsoft Edge on top of Chromium to really start competing in browser space. Now, months after its wide release, Microsoft ‘s Chromium Edge is rolling out to all 10 users on Windows.
Microsoft’s Chromium version of Microsoft Edge is already a big win for Microsoft-after all, it’s the worlds largest second-most popular desktop browser. Now, those figures are getting a big boost.
The new Microsoft Edge will head over to all Windows 10 users via Windows Update starting this week. The Chromium-based Edge will be installed to millions of devices as the new pre-loaded browser on PCs. Microsoft is confirming the rollout for Windows 10 versions 1803, 1809, 1903 and 1909 in two separate blog posts. That means it will be available to the vast majority of 1 billion+ users of Windows.
Since its first launch earlier this year, Microsoft Edge has been building up its feature list, now offering an experience that can truly rival the dominant Google Chrome. There will also be more new features coming soon.
