Microsoft Edge's hours are counted: time to switch browsers!

Microsoft Edge's hours are counted: time to switch browsers!
It has been over a year since Microsoft released the beta version of its Chromium-based Edge browser, abandoning the proprietary code it used previously. Recall that Chromium is used as a base by various companies including Google (Chrome), Vivaldi, Opera, Yandex, Brave and others, for the creation of their browsers. The source code was published as "open source" in 2008, concurrently with the launch of Google Chrome.

Apparently, many users have been satisfied with the experience offered by the "new" Microsoft Edge over the recent months, so much so that some have found it even better than the most widely used Chrome, especially from the point of view of memory consumption. This allowed the Redmond company to acquire a lot of data, improve the product and, recently, announced that the definitive switch to Edge based on Chromium will take place starting next April.

In fact, Microsoft will permanently remove the old version of Edge from Windows 10 systems from April 13 via an update, replacing it with the Chromium-based counterpart. It has been known for some time now that the so-called Edge Legacy browser would no longer be supported from March 9 and now we also know when it will be abandoned altogether. Chromium, in practice, is shaping web browsing as we know it today, as it is monopolizing the browser market, forming the basis on which the most popular software for rendering websites rests.

In addition to the Windows operating system, Microsoft Edge is also available for macOS, Android, iOS and Linux. A few days ago we also told you about the arrival of a new user interface for downloads and collections, which will surely be appreciated by all users.
