Microsoft officials have said the new Chromium-based Edge browser will be generally available starting January 15, 2020. They also said in early November that the new Edge will be bundled with Windows 10 right after the general availability date, though this will happen in a staggered/staged manner. This week, the Redmondians are providing links to more details about the coming Edge rollout for Windows 10.
The general-purpose tool can adapt to many roles. For example, if you’re a shopper, it will help you collect and compare items. If you’re an event organizer, it will help pull together all your event information. Or, if you’re a teacher or a student, Collections will help you organize your web research and create your lesson plans or reports.

You may have known that Microsoft is currently working on changing the Microsoft Edge browser and is using Chromium as its’ base. If you currently use Chrome, you will be right at home with Edge. If you go to “Major Geeks”, you can download the canary version of Edge. For you folks at home; anytime you see the terms, “canary, alpha, beta”, these are test versions and have not been released to the public in general.
Finally, I am seeing where Firefox version 70.0 has been released. I never thought I would see the day where software versions reach into the high double digits, but here we are. This version is about 8 digits higher than my age–LOL. Anyhow, Firefox is an excellent browser that you should consider that is available on my platforms.
Feel free to comment and share your software finds. You can find a whole slew of downloads HERE … that are updated daily.

Just to let folks know, the browser that ships with Windows 10 is called Microsoft Edge. The developer and underlying code of the Microsoft Edge browser is a Microsoft engineered product.
It appears, in the near future, we are going to see a change in the Microsoft Edge browser in appearance and in the underlying code (the foundation) that makes the browser work. The appearance and underlying code are going to be based on Chromium, which is a (see Wikipedia) Google open-source web browser project. It is a fully functional browser on its own and supplies the vast majority of code for the Google Chrome browser.
So what does this mean to you at home? It means you should eventually see a new web browser still called “Edge” that will replace the current version of “Edge”; that will have a cleaner and faster interface (see video below)…
An early build of Microsoft’s upcoming Chromium-based Edge browser has recently leaked online. This browser, which despite carrying the same name as it’s predecessor, will be built from a completely different foundation, and therefore, provide a completely refreshed experience for those who are already familiar with the current manifestation of Microsoft Edge. This new browser…
Looks like Microsoft is doing a rebuild of their Microsoft Edge Browser using Chromium as it guts..
Microsoft announced during early December that they will be giving up on the current code base of their Microsoft Edge browser switching to Google’s open-source Chromium and that the nametag will remain unchanged even though the app will be a whole different beast inside and outside.
