The Microsoft Edge browser has become a failure in Windows 10, so Microsoft has reportedly decided to add it to Windows 7.

Although end-of-life for Windows 7 occurs in January 2020, Microsoft reportedly plans to add Microsoft Edge to it in mid/late 2019.

If that's true, and if Microsoft decides to support Microsoft Edge beyond January 2020, I'm guessing more people will continue to use Windows 7 instead of switching to Windows 10.

Time will tell.

It seems chromium is open source so Micro$oft can add their own stuff to it and then call it Edge.

From DaveA's link in post #2 :-
Microsoft's Corporate Vice President of Windows, Joe Belfiore, said the following:

Ultimately, we want to make the web-experience better for many different audiences. People using Microsoft Edge (and potentially other browsers) will experience improved compatibility with all websites, while getting the best possible battery life and hardware integration on all kinds of Windows devices.

Web developers will have a less-fragmented web-platform to test their sites against, ensuring that there are fewer problems and increased satisfaction for users of their sites; and because we'll continue to provide the Microsoft Edge service-driven understanding of legacy IE-only sites, Corporate IT will have improved compatibility for both old and new web apps in the browser that comes with Windows.
So that's ok then. :whistle:
