Microsoft announced last week that it is planning to build Edge again using Chromium. The internet had a pretty split reaction to this news.
Last week, Microsoft announced that the company is going to rebuild Edge from the ground up using the Chromium open-source project along with the Blink rendering engine. This is a huge deal, for both users and web developers, as it means there's now one less rendering engine to code for. For users, this should result in websites behaving the same across Edge, Chrome, and Opera, but it also means there are now only two rendering engines in use.

I like the idea of MS building off of Chromium. Good engine, plenty of companies working on it, full support for FIDO/FIDO2 2FA... and I'm sure MS will put their own spin on it that works well for Windows users. Also, it will make things easier for watching on Mixer. :winktongue:
