As I understand it, Chromium web standards are becoming more prevalent and the standard MS Edge browser of course doesn't follow those standards, so some parts of web browsing simply didn't work on Edge.

Easy solution is just use Chromium as the engine for a new browser..

Makes sense to me. However, it would be nice if MS didn't try to make all their own "standards" like with that Silverlight crap, etc. I believe thats what created this rift in web standards to begin with.

The browser wars will wage on for some time.

google is getting way too powerful. i like chrome because of the amount of extensions available but google could get rid of the ones they don't like tomorrow .

looks like MS has completely given up on their own browser, and once they switch over to the Chrome version full-time, i have a feeling Google will clean house.

It's not like MS hasn't tried to own the browser market themselves.... They've been dictating their "own" net standards for years, and let's not forget them being caught purposely ruining Netscape back in the day.

MS is no good guy either. But it's ironic how the monopolistic giants of yesterday are being supplanted by new ones today.

It wasn't good when MS dominated everything, and now it's not good that Google does. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

MS stated that they were doing this, because google was constantly changing things that broke stuff in EDGE. Guess they figured F it, we'll just go chromium, so you can't break our browser anymore.

I don't think it was so much Google, as the features and web "standards" that Edge claimed to support, was either buggy or partially implemented. Practices that carried over from IE11 "development standards".

Any standard website should/would pull up looking nearly identically in FF/Opera/Chrome, etc. Try pulling it up in Edge, and things just looked different, or broken..

Given the slew of other browsers including mobile platforms that rendered correctly, something, something, Microsoft.

Given my experience developing between the major browsers, most things I've have developed worked right out of the gate with Edge, not everything, but very close. Things that didn't work quite right were usually very minor to correct. More often than not, Safari has been the troublesome browser, where it works everywhere else. Safari is the new IE.

Just a little update on this. I have recently worked on some very design heavy sites and ran into some Edge (not chromium) specific issues that I wanted to point out.

CSS clip-path using polygon()

Just straight up doesn't work like it does in every other browser. To compound on that, Edge falsely says that it supports a polygon() value, when it doesn't. As a fallback, you can supply an SVG element ID containing the values, but it still doesn't clip the target element like it's supposed to.

CSS animations that are using translate, scale, and transition with some JS sprinkled in: Nope, not unless you want your web-page to look like it's having a seizure

I also ran into a weird flexbox issue that is only broken in Edge, but can't remember what it was ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

In any case, I'm glad MS is throwing in the towel. It's a shame we can't make IE go away too
