Microsoft looks set finally break from its Internet Explorer past with a brand-new stylized e-shaped wave logo. The new look is undoubtedly fresh while just hinting enough at its past for those with a sense of nostalgia, but it is certainly on point for its debut using the Chromium web engine.

Microsoft has revealed the all-new logo for the new version of its Edge internet browser, the first built using Chromium as its basis. It was revealed as an Easter egg in a special series of puzzles posted my Microsoft employees as cryptic clues including the use of Javscript that led to a secret surfing game that ultimately led to new logo. As you can tell, it is a highly stylized letter ‘e’ for Edge that is shaped into a cresting wave although there are still the slightest hints back to the original IE browser retained, no doubt, for a little nostalgia.

The biggest reason for the switch to Chromium for the new Edge is compatibility. With Google Chrome particularly popular, if a site glitched using the soon to be deprecated version of Edge built on Microsoft’s technology, a user would switch to a more compatible browser. Chromium also plays better with a wider range of platforms from anything to a Mac to ARM-based smartphones and tablets.

If you haven’t already downloaded the Edge Insider beta of the Chromium-based Edge, you won’t need to wait long to give the final release a run. Microsoft’s Ignite tech showcase hits Orlando next week and there is a strong possibility it could debut then, or we will at least get time frame in which a launch is expected.

The new Edge browsers is an example of how Microsoft has become much more open and flexible under the leadership of CEO Satya Nadella who would rather see Microsoft embraced an as many platforms as possible, rather than necessarily controlling every aspect of the user experience.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
