As reported, Microsoft will be moving to Chromium as the basis for its own Microsoft Edge web browser. This allows the company to update the browser more often than Windows, make it more compatible with the real web, gain access to the thousands of extensions available, and make it available on more platforms (Windows 7, 8.1, and Mac).
The company wants to jump-start the process for developers, to keep them on-board with upcoming changes. To do this, a new Microsoft Edge Insider program is now available and Microsoft is offering developers the change to participate:
