Apparently, Microsoft wants its Browser to die

" Microsoft is working on a on Chromium-based Browser , Edge to Windows 10 to replace," writes Windows Central. The message is based on information from well-informed sources; officially, the software giant has said nothing about the future of the browser. But the author is sure: the "Edge HTML is dead."

This is noteworthy for two reasons: on the one Hand, it would be an admission that Microsoft failed to impress the user with its Browser. Although Edge is preinstalled on Windows 10 and the users occasionally as the default Browser offers, users pay for Microsoft staggering: Edge, according to Marketshare.com under a five percent share. The undisputed Leader Chrome is 63 percent. Second place with 11.2 percent of the Internet Explorer, even though Microsoft has already stated that in March 2015, this Browser will set in favor of the Edge browser. (In the case of Statcounter.com Chrome is even greater: 72 percent of the market share. On Firefox of 9.1 percent. Edge has 4 percent. IE is less strong, but with 5.4 percent, still before the Edge.)

Running Microsoft into Google's arms?

Second, surprised that Microsoft is based, apparently, on Chromium. Chromium is the Open-Source variant of Google Chrome. It is maintained by the Chromium Project, Google is projecting that accepts contributions from the Community. To of Chrome, some of the proprietary and trademarked components are missing.

Chromium is a proven and widely gediehenes project. Nevertheless, it would be regarded by many as a failure that Microsoft didn't make it, the Internet Explorer to replace. With the election of Chromium would make Microsoft from competitors – and many would argue, rightly, that it is Chrome under the circumstances, also equal to the Original, namely to could.

Google is in League with Apple

However, is about Microsoft's new Browser, code-named Anaheim, still little known. It is conceivable that Microsoft will replace only the core component. The so-called Browser Engine is the component that displays the web pages on the screen. Microsoft uses its own Engine called Edge HTML. Google Chrome is a Software called flashing. Which in turn is based on an Engine called Webkit and which has originally launched by Apple for its Safari Browser. It is not uncommon that competing Browser under the hood is the same technology.

The Strengths and weaknesses of the Desktop Browser.

you Should choose Microsoft for this way, you could proceed to the exchange of almost unnoticed: The user interface and the operation could remain as they are. The task of the own Browser Engine, Microsoft would save a considerable development effort that the group might invest, for example, in the improvement of the surface – to the experience of the user ultimately significantly crucial.

For the Internet it would still be a loss: The Browser Engine determines what Browser and what not. In addition to the-Webkit-variants, and Microsoft's Edge HTML there is only one large Engine, namely, Gecko from Mozilla, and Firefox. If the Edge is omitted from HTML to Google's influence via the Web inevitably. (Tages-Anzeiger.ch/Newsnet)
