Microsoft officially declared transition of Edge to Chromium cursor


The Microsoft company confirmed officially information on the transfer of the Edge browser to Chromium cursor. The name of the browser will be kept. The new Edge option will be prepared for all supported desktop Windows platforms. Further creation of the version for other platforms, such as macOS is planned. The first test release of Edge on a cursor of Chromium is expected at the beginning of 2019. In the course of work on the browser of Microsoft to join development of Chromium and will return the improvements created for Edge and correction in the project.

the Mozilla Company considers that transition of Edge to a cursor of Chromium will negatively affect Web because of decrease in the competition in the market of browsers and reduction of the choice of alternatives. The competition between products of Microsoft, Google and Mozilla served as the main incentive for expansion of functionality of browsers and formation of modern Web technologies in the last 10 years. Transition of Microsoft to Chromium will make this cursor finally dominating in the market.

On the one hand it will reduce fragmentation in Web and will simplify life to web developer who should not adapt the products to features of different browsers, but on the other hand will create danger of delay of development and will complicate advances of innovations (for example if earlier the innovation could appear in Edge and it picked up other browsers, then now as an alternative there is only Firefox).

In spite of the fact that the Chromium project is free and can take part in its development anyone, infrastructure on development of Chromium and decision-making process is completely controlled by the Google company. Representatives of Mozilla are afraid that application of Chromium as a basis for the majority of browsers will give the chance of one company to control all online-infrastructure.

Arise risks on imposing to web developer or the companies of certain technologies (for example, in Chrome already tried to avoid display of traditional URL in an address line that is favorable to creation of illusion of the appeal directly to the website at application by the advanced Google of AMP technology (Accelerated Mobile Pages)). Also there is a danger of repetition of the crisis and stagnation observed at the time of monopoly of Internet Explorer. When 90% of all browsers are constructed on the basis of one cursor, it is simpler to Web developer to rely when developing only on one cursor and to use its specific opportunities, without considering a question of compatibility with alternatives.
