In what comes as a welcome sign of submission from Microsoft,
the company on Thursday confirmed it will
adopt the open source Chromium platform next year in the
development of its Edge browser. That’s the same platform powering
Google’s Chrome, which just so happens to be the most popular
browser on the planet.
In the end, this is a move that will benefit all parties
involved. Average users will find Edge to be more compatible than
ever before. Web developers won’t have to worry about testing their
sites on yet another platform. And the Chromium project will be far
more robust with a team of Microsoft engineers working on it. We
won’t see the fruits of Microsoft’s labor until 2019, but this is
undeniably a step in the right direction for the company.
