    Microsoft is bringing Chromium-based Edge to Windows 10, 8, 7 and macOS


    There were rumours claiming that Edge browser will go cross-platform and use Chromium’s Blink rendering engine soon.

    Today, Microsoft officially announced that Edge will ditch EdgeHTML rendering engine to become a part of the Chromium family. Microsoft is rebuilding the Edge browser with Chromium’s Blink and this may encourage users to give it a try.

    The brand-new Microsoft Edge browser won’t come with Google services but it will use the Chromium’s Blink rendering engine, a popular open-source web rendering engine that powers Google’s Chrome browser and Edge browser on Android.

    Microsoft Edge has pretty much failed to gain traction in the browser market but the company is apparently not ready to give up on its own web browser. Microsoft Edge is joining the Chromium community to improve the web through more open source collaboration

    Microsoft Edge has around 4 percent of the market and it’s pretty clear that Microsoft needs to change something to bring it to more devices and address the compatibility issues.

    Microsoft is building a new Chromium-based browser under Edge name and features to serve as the new default in Windows 10.

    “People using Microsoft Edge (and potentially other browsers) will experience improved compatibility with all web sites, while getting the best-possible battery life and hardware integration on all kinds of Windows devices,” Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore wrote in a blog post.

    What’s going to change?


    Microsoft is not killing Edge browser but the company is rebuilding it under the same brand. You will notice that Edge browser will render the webpages more consistently as the browser will use the same rendering engine which powers Chrome.

    Microsoft Edge won’t be exclusive to Windows 10 as the software giant is bringing the new Chromium-based Edge to Windows 7, 8 and macOS.

    The rebuilt Edge browser is coming next year


    The rebuilt Edge browser isn’t ready for the testing yet and the Insiders will get access to early beta builds next year.

    Microsoft will be making necessary changes to Windows 10 with future Insider builds to shift Edge toward Chromium.

    “We are excited about the opportunity to be an even-more-active part of this community and bring the best of Microsoft forward to continue to make the web better for everyone,” says Belfiore

    Microsoft Botches Up UEFI Support for Windows 7 on ASUS Motherboards

    Microsoft suggests updating to Windows 10 to patch Windows 7

    MICROSOFT HAS confirmed a potentially lappy-borking problem that it won't be fixing, because Windows 7.

    Woody Leonhard, the respected Windows columnist, points to a problem involving Asus motherboards, which also appear rebadged in a variety of other manufacturers' machines, and the activation of UEFI Secure Boot for Windows 7 in a patch KB3133977.

    Short version: install update, welcome to Borksville, population you.

    Both Asus and Microsoft acknowledged the problem. Microsoft entitled the article "BitLocker can't encrypt drives because of service crashes in svchost.exe process in Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2", but we prefer to just call it "Trevor for brevity."

    The firm's advice was that it's an optional update, leave well alone, you'll be fine, or alternatively turn secure boot off.

    Then Microsoft did a silly, silly thing.

    It moved the update from 'optional' to 'recommended' and anyone who reads this site regularly will know what happens when Microsoft does this. That's right boys and girls - it makes it automatically install, unless you've specifically told your machine not to.

    So now, if you have one of the affected motherboard and you keep your security updates automatic like wot Microsoft recommends, then your machine will stop working properly.

    We should add it's not permanently bricked, but it will take some mucking about in the BIOS to fix and that's a pain even for an experienced computer user.

    Microsoft has, by offering a workaround, suggested heavily that it won't be fixing the problem, though we have asked the question, so expect a response in about a fortnight.

    But the real kicker is this piece of advice: "Note The Secure Boot feature is supported in Windows 10. To learn more about the security advantages of this feature and about the upgrade path from Windows 7 to Windows 10, go to the following Windows website"

    Holy toledo, this company really knows how to rub people up the wrong way.

    After all - if the advice is to manually avoid the update or move to a version of the operating system where there's virtually no control over updates, then Microsoft is dealing in massive contradictions.

    A more cynical site would suggest that it's yet another example of Microsoft running Windows 7 into the ground and adding built in obsolescence to encourage quicker updates. But we're not that sort of site.

    Its the patching to force secure boot that is the problem win 7 does not support secure boot
    hence it borks systems and well microsofts answer is Cactus >your Asshole > insert
