Microsoft unveils new logo for Microsoft Edge Browser

Microsoft is here with the new logo for its Chromium-based Edge browser. The new logo, however, looks like an “e” but its corresponding to the company’s policy for a “Fluent design” language. This update is a direct response to the company’s efforts to re-establish their status in the desktop browser segment.

But, the Edge Browser is not so relatable to Internet Explorer. As we know that the Microsoft is embracing Google’s Chromium open-source engine for the browser, the same web-rendering that powers the Highest Internet Browser Market Share, Google Chrome browser. Sooner or later Microsoft Edge will be powered by Blink and the V8 JavaScript engine. Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President of Windows says, “Ultimately, we want to make the web-experience better for many different audiences. People using Microsoft Edge will experience improved compatibility with all web sites while getting the best-possible battery life and hardware integration on all kinds of Windows devices.”
