The new app, which will also be called Edge, will also allow Microsoft to make a browser for Apple's MacOS. The open-source Web rendering engine is already available to the masses through Google's Chrome browser.

However, still we don't have much concrete information about this new version of Windows OS of the tech giant Mircosoft, but everything points to the tech giant Microsoft might be preparing to release this new version of Windows in the near future which is named as Windows Lite as we told earlier and not only that even this new version of Windows should be created to compete directly with the tech giant Google's well-known operating system, of course, I am talking about none other than the ChromeOS.

Some might see this as Mozilla ire against Microsoft for not choosing to use Mozilla's own Gecko Quantum rendering engine, but Mozilla makes a good point.

Safari could join Firefox, Chrome, and Edge support for Web Authentication. The revamped Edge will get much more frequent updates, too.

Because Chromium is open source, Microsoft will also be giving back to the community, causing other Chromium browsers such as Chrome to improve as well on Windows.

"Our intent is to align the Microsoft Edge web platform simultaneously (a) with web standards and (b) with other Chromium-based browsers. We expect our engineers to learn and over time become experts in the Chromium project". Many web developers use Macs, and by providing a version of Edge that they can test against, Microsoft will ensure that everything works as it should.

Just visit the Microsoft Edge Insider website and sign up there to receive information about upcoming builds. "It will be interesting to see how Microsoft and Google engage as competitors on the same code base, both short term and long term". According to the Mozilla chief: "If one product like Chromium has enough market share, then it becomes easier for web developers and businesses to decide not to worry if their services and sites work with anything other than Chromium". However, a host of other browsers like Opera and courageous also use the code base.

Google welcomed Microsoft's announcement, saying: "Chrome has been a champion of the open Web since inception and we welcome Microsoft to the community of Chromium contributors".

While Google is understandably happy about the change, the CEO of Mozilla, Chris Beard, says it is bad for competition and will help to make Google even more powerful.

"From a social, civic and individual empowerment perspective ceding control of fundamental online infrastructure to a single company is bad", wrote Mozilla CEO Chris Beard.

But the company, of course, I am talking about the tech giant Microsoft wants to offer even more and data begin to show that there is yet another project on the way.
