The publisher has unveiled the logo that will accompany the release of its new Edge browser, currently in beta and based on the Chromium rendering engine.
It has been several months since Microsoft developed a new version of its Edge browser. This one is very different from the version preinstalled on Windows 10 since based on the rendering engine Chromium. A new logo will accompany its release.
Microsoft had already changed the logo of its browser when Edge arrived to differentiate it from Internet Explorer but had kept the letter E stylized that is currently known. This time the letter disappears almost completely to give way to a blue wave with a gradient tugging on the green. It was unveiled during a treasure hunt session organized for the testers and relayed on Twitter.
But the real novelty lies in the heart of the software with the use of the same rendering engine as the Chrome browser. Microsoft had explained that it was not a simple change of rendering engine but that it wanted to take an active part in its development. For nearly a year, the development versions have followed one another and a beta version has been available since this summer.
The arrival of the new logo may foreshadow the arrival of a finalized version. There is little link appeared on the search engines indicating the presence of a stable version that actually led to the latest beta. An announcement could be made this week at the Microsoft Ignite event currently taking place in the United States.
