Microsoft plans Windows 10 icon overhaul

Microsoft plans Windows 10 icon overhaul

Also, it's still unknown whether Anaheim will sport a similar user interface to Edge or wear completely new clothes.

When Microsoft launched Windows 10 in 2015, it came with a new web browser called Edge, which replaced the aging Internet Explorer as the default and offered interesting new features such as Cortana suggestions and page annotation.

This new design push by Microsoft should result in a much more modern and cohesive aesthetic experience for users which has been a long time coming.

There are two very interesting rumours about Microsoft circulating the intertubes today, both involving Alphabet's Chrome products. Using the Chromium engine could help Microsoft's new browser work with the same extensions available to Chrome. A Microsoft-made Chromium-based browser would render web pages almost identically as Chrome, meaning less confusion over which web site works well in what browser. This initiative could also pave the way for development of the new Chromium-based browser.

If true, this would mark a huge turn of events for Microsoft, as it would essentially be the company throwing in the towel on its own Edge browser and adopting the Google Chrome framework. Honestly, we can't wait to see what Microsoft could do with the Chromium engine. According to Petri it is a version of Windows that is focused on Chromebooks, laptops running on Chrome OS. Even the browser that Edge supplanted, the defunct Internet Explorer, was sitting at 9.64 per cent.

Qualcomm says it has 'no plans' to revive failed NXP bid
The Trump administration had unsuccessfully lobbied the Chinese government earlier this year to give its blessing to the deal. According to reports , Qualcomm and NXP have been patiently waiting for two years to win the regulatory approval from China .

The rumours state that the new browser will be using Chromium - Google's rendering engine that powers the Chrome browser, for the foundation of the new browser.

What will this mean for you?

Microsoft is working with Morphisec and Cisco to fix the issue meanwhile the only quick solution is uninstalling the affected software until the updated version of affected software is released and allow users to install the Windows 10 update.

Compare that to Google's 61 percent share and you can see why Microsoft may be more than a little concerned. It's not clear if the new browser would keep the Edge brand name or get a new name. Let us know down below!
