Most will have heard it by now, Microsoft is dropping the Edge. Well, almost, just the initial version of the Edge browser. But there will be a new one. It will use the Open-Source Chromium engine as its rendering engine. This is also used by Google Chrome. But this will not just be a Chrome Clone from Microsoft. Rather it will be a mixture of the initial Edge and Chrome. It should combine the best of both worlds.
