The days of the Edge browser are numbered. Microsoft will completely ditch the classic version in Windows 10
Since the end of last year, Microsoft has begun to diligently get rid of the multimedia platform Adobe Flash: this year even a special update was released that removes Flash from Windows 10. And now the classic Edge browser will suffer the same fate.
Microsoft said it would end support for it on March 9, with no security updates from that date. Well, Microsoft wants to completely get rid of the classic Edge next month: on April 13, an update will be released that will replace the classic Edge with a new one – on the Chromium engine. It will replace the old Edge in all versions of Windows 10, but Windows 7 and Windows 8 are not participating in this old Edge replacement program.
