Tech giant Microsoft continues to improve the user experience. In this context, the company is preparing to retire the old Edge internet browser. Microsoft, which will remove the old browser from Windows computers, will install the next generation, chromium-based next-generation Edge, instead.
Let’s say that Edge, which will retire, is the version that Microsoft released with Windows 10. The old browser, which uses the company’s self-developed EdgeHTML creation engine, will be depreable on April 13.
In 2019, the company announced that Google had re-created the browser from scratch to take advantage of Chromium software. In June last year, Microsoft began offering it to a Windows update.
In addition, Microsoft has not released any additional security updates for the old Edge as of March 9, 2021, after releasing Chromium-based Edge.
Finally, if you have already installed the Chromium version of Edge on your computer, the update will only remove the old version. Therefore, you do not need to make an extra move. However, if you don’t have Chromium-based Edge yet, Microsoft will install the new browser for you starting April 13.
