When Microsoft launched Windows 10, they introduced a new browser designed to replace Internet Explorer in the form of Edge. For those who might still be using Internet Explorer, for whatever reasons, you might want to take note that the company has recently announced that support for Internet Explorer 11 will be coming to an end in August 2021.
Microsoft’s new Chromium-based Edge browser has started to roll out to users, and we imagine that given how much of a memory hog Google’s Chrome browser is, some users might be looking to make the switch. To make things easier for users, Microsoft has given users the option to import their browser data from other browsers to Edge.
One of the main criticisms of Google’s Chrome browser is that it is a memory hog. While the browser is fantastic and the integration of your Google account makes it a breeze to use, it can be quite demanding in terms of memory which can affect users who are using less powerful computers with less RAM.
Last year, Microsoft announced plans to revamp its Edge browser by building it using the Chromium framework. For those who are curious about the browser, you’ll be pleased to learn that the browser will now be available on Windows 10 thanks to the latest update to Windows 10 in which the updated browser is included in the update.
Did you know that one of the Easter Eggs for Google’s Chrome browser is an endless runner game that can be activated when the browser detects that you’re offline? It turns out that Microsoft loves that idea and has since announced that its Edge browser, now built using Chromium, will be gaining a similar feature as well.
Microsoft’s Internet Explorer was the butt of many jokes back in the day, but to Microsoft’s credit, they did improve on the browser over the years, although unfortunately, it never did quite manage to shake its poor reputation. This is why Microsoft introduced a new browser called Edge with Windows 10.

Microsoft and Google are rivals in the tech industry, but more recently, the companies have become more closely aligned than ever when Microsoft launched a Chromium-based version of its Edge browser. It looks like Microsoft’s decision is about to benefit Google yet again in the form of multi tab management.
A couple of years ago, Microsoft made a surprising announcement in which they revealed that they would be rebuilding its Edge browser by using the Chromium platform.

While variety and having options is usually a good thing, this can also sometimes create problems. For example, there are different browsers in the market today but they are all built differently, which means that when it comes to compatibility, there are certain things that will work for some browsers and certain things that won’t.
In case you did not know, there are many websites that track you. This is mainly for advertising purposes where these ads can track users across multiple websites to better discern your browsing and shopping habits. Naturally, some people aren’t too comfortable with that which is why some companies have built in anti-tracking features, such as Apple did with Safari.
It seemed like Microsoft might have slightly conceded to Google when the company announced their plans to rebuild its Edge browser based on Chromium, the same platform that Google’s Chrome browser is based on. However, it seems that isn’t enough for Google because according to reports, Google still very much wants Edge users to use Chrome.
