The Windows OS owner has put started developing a new browser for Windows 10 as seek to replace Microsoft Edge with a Chromium based browser.

Edge, like its predecessor the Internet Explorer, has been dubbed “the best browsers for downloading better browsers (Firefox, Opera, Chrome etc) on theWindows OS”

According to Windowscentral, “Microsoft is throwing in the towel with EdgeHTML and is instead building a new web browser powered by Chromium, which uses a similar rendering engine first popularized by Google’s Chrome browser known as Blink.

Codenamed “Anaheim,” this new browser for Windows 10 will replace Edge as the default browser on the platform, according to my sources, who wish to remain anonymous. It’s unknown at this time if Anaheim will use the Edge brand or a new brand, or if the user interface (UI) between Edge and Anaheim is different. One thing is for sure, however; EdgeHTML in Windows 10’s default browser is dead.”

Last month, Microsoft started helping Google to bring Chrome to Windows 10 on ARM computers, which was seen by many as a shock given that Edge was deemed the best browser on Windows 10 for ARM.

While details on the project are still slim, switching to a Chromium powered browser will make the Windows 10 browser behave like Google Chrome. Edge browser for Android already runs on Chrome’s Blink engine and this is definitely the right step for Windows.
