At the moment, Microsoft is developing a new Edge browser using Chromium. While a developer preview might come out within weeks, the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser, codenamed Anaheim, leaked in new screenshots.
The new leaked images represent the most reliable “preview” we have so far over the new Microsoft Edge browser that would be based on Chromium. However, from the screenshots, we can see that the user interface on this future Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser is not much different than the Chromium UI. Hopefully, Microsoft would implement some changes in this regard before going public with the release.
What’s interesting, though, is that Microsoft focused on a new Edge homepage. It seems that users would be able to change the appearance of the starting page in the future Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser and enable or disable some options, as well as change the layout or add a new image as the background. Also, a new Extension Store appears, meaning that users might be able to add the same extensions as in Chrome.
Chromium-Based Microsoft Edge Browser Leaked In New Screenshots
Besides the novelties we can pinpoint in the new images with the upcoming Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser, the Redmond-based tech giant plans on implementing some exciting features in its new browser. However, not all these additions will be available in the developer preview expected to roll out in the next weeks.
Microsoft wants to improve its Edge browser. In this regard, the company considered that the best way to achieve the needed improvement would be to start creating a Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser. From the leaked screenshots showing this new Edge browser built with Chromium, we can see some improvements already. Many will still come, though, to the browser before its public release.
