Pretty much the same thing. Trdent, the core of what was ie and became edge, is dead. It may as well be a monarch change if ever there was one, hence the "long live edge" phrasing.
Okaaaay. Semantics. Fact is Raevenlord made an intentionally deceptive headline that sounds as if Edge is disappearing.

Not a direct knock on him. All the news writers on TPU are falling into the same pattern lately with every other story.

I don't care if they kept the name. The underlying news is the bad thing.

I do not use Chrome because it clashes with my Anti-Virus package and gives me the "SSL Version Interference" error when I load webpages. That is why I use Edge. I wonder if this is fixed in Chrome/Kaspersky 2019

But honestly I quite like Edge..

Since Microsoft switching to Chrome/Chromium's rendering engine is pretty much already decided, I wonder what they will do with Edge's current code... Would be interesting if MS open-sourced it and someone grabbed it to do something with it...

Schwoosh, that was the sound of it going over your head.

Also, Microsoft should forever be punished for giving us the abomination that was Internet Explorer. That alone set development back a decade.

It'll just go to waste in the vault.. just like everything else that gets swallowed up in the consolidation of products.

I don't know what it is about tech, but it seems to like becoming more and more limited over time, and there's a lot of wasted effort in the road towards this path. Take consoles, CPU designs, OSes, etc., etc.. for another example.

It's different than, say, my hobby with music equipment. You might see acquisitions here and there, but you don't see the same level of waste or rebranding. People can actually put their heart into their craft and see their brands/products thrive for decades.

Anyone else bugged by the fact that there is an open parentheses with no closing parentheses?
There are many grammatical errors, can't settle on just the one.

Nadella is a saboteur. This isn't the only thing he's destroyed within Microsoft. And it's not just products. He saw it fit to change the whole culture and called it "sick" in a book (not to mention he makes everyone read some stupid psychology book now. "Nonviolent Communication" or something like that). They were the fine without this guy. They didn't conquer the world with this weak shit.

I guess I just think of what makes a browser differently, so did not spot it immediately. But I see your perspective too... a browser is a brand and interface as much as a rendering engine.

And yes, I agree. As much as I love this place some of the headlines have been a bit sensationalist lately. Friendly criticism team, take it for what it's worth...

I don't feel corporate culture has anything to do with why they lost the browser wars. As a matter of fact, it might be more the former culture had a good deal as to why they lost them. Thumbing your nose at open standards pisses off the universe and you can't fight them all forever...

It's not just MS. Look at Adobe. I hear flash is doing swell. :p

They lost the browser wars in the big antitrust thing years back. Never truly recovered from it.

But it's hypocritical. Google is more ubiquitous and intrusive than they ever were - not to mention are overtly making moves against free speech (and even admits it).. and no one does a thing.

You actually said what I was unable to convey in words. A “brand”. I see what you are saying about the underlying code making it not “Edge”. But, if MS does this well, most users of Edge may not even realize that their brand is any different.

Apple effectively did that with the PowerPC transition. The whole codebase literally changed it's assembly language, and not one person really cared.

Laws are part of wars. They knew them before they acted. They really brought that one on themselves IMO.

A law that only applies to one company isn't a law.

edit: I'd say the same for what happened to AT&T back in the day as well. Multiple companies nowadays are bigger than they ever dreamed of.

Google and Mozilla. Though Mozilla is increasingly a sellout lately. But their source is still useful.

It applies to any company that reaches number one in a market. There are special rules for monopolies or near-monopolies. And yes, they are laws.

You can't abuse dominance in one position to artificially boost your market share in another, essentially. It's the definition of anti-competitive behavior.

Google needs a smacking for abusing it's homepage to "sell" chrome, speaking of which.

Until I see it happening to someone like Google, there isn't any justice in it. You could say it's theoretically valid, but it isn't in practice. The whole 2000s after Microsoft was a series of companies like Google swallowing the market and watching the whole tech world become smaller and less diverse. And not just tech really. The media is basically owned by the same handful of companies too (Disney, Newscorp, Warner, Viacom?). We're in a world now where one company owns DC, Marvel, Star Trek, AND Star Wars. When I was a kid, we used to have wars on what was better. Now it's all the same shit.

I used both Edge and Firefox.

I sure hope Firefox maintains a decent place in usage. To me, it's one of the more standout open source projects (and almost representative as Linux or LibreOffice). It'd be a shame if Chromium takes over the OSS world too, and we get the same level of shitty sameness there too. It's bad enough that Google already has a giant presence in the Linux world at all. Any casual Linux (Android) user probably already thinks they're synonymous.

I mean, if you toggle all the options off it's ok for privacy. But still. WTF is pocket doing here? :p
I just checked Avant, which I have installed but not opened in a couple years. It was always a great alternative to IE, and built on IE engine.

Not anymore. It’s using the Chrome rendering engine, and still looking and acting exactly like Avant used to.

I think this will be the result with Edge as well. No one will know unless they are geeks like us.

You could say it's theoretically valid, but it isn't in practice.
I'd say I was saying exactly that.

Sadly, welcome to the real world.
