Recently, Microsoft officially announced the official release of the open source Edge browser based on Chromium. At the previous Microsoft Ignite2019 conference, Microsoft disclosed the news of the browser and announced that it would be pushed to users through OTA software updates on January 15.

In fact, Microsoft announced early last year that it would abandon its self-developed browser engine and later add a third-party kernel version through adaptation. At the same time, the browser on the Windows 10 system will be revamped to use the Chromium kernel, but it did not disclose the exact time. It is reported that the reason why Microsoft gave up the self-developed browser engine project is very simple, because after years of competition, the project did not achieve the desired goal.

The Chromium version of Edge browser is no stranger to users who like to turn their computers upside down. Some time ago, the internal installation package of the browser has appeared on the Internet, and many netizens have downloaded it for trial.

In addition, according to Microsoft's official introduction, this open source version of the browser will also be installed on the computer through Windows Update. However, because this version is based on the Chromium kernel, the system will not automatically back up user data when updating this version, and users are expected to back up important data on their own.
