Microsoft Edge is much improved in moving to Chromium engine rendering for web pages with better performance & functionality

There is no bigger IT news than this week’s announcement of the Microsoft Edge Chromium browser for Apple MacOS. It blends the compatibility benefits of Google Chrome with the legacy benefits of Edge, so that this is now, in my experience, the closest thing to a universal browser in the market. On first load, it reminds me a bit of my first experience on Firefox, when I was amazed about how quickly it would launch web pages. It made old Edge feel ancient and even seemed to outperform the Chrome browser on my system. It also appears to address some of the unique compatibility issues that forced me to occasionally use the Firefox or Opera browsers.
