PSA: Microsoft Edge Legacy support ends today

The original Microsoft Edge browser wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t finished. Microsoft hasn’t always made the best decisions when it comes to Windows 10 (who can forget the dark days when the software giant 'upgraded' Windows 7 machines to the new OS without user consent), but adopting the Chromium engine for a brand new version of Edge was one of its smartest moves.

The new Chromium browser is a huge improvement, which is just as well as from today Microsoft is stopping supporting its predecessor, now referred to as Edge Legacy.

Microsoft's search engine Bing declares Prince Philip dead… but he isn't

I know it has its fans, but I’ve always found Microsoft’s search engine to be a bit, well, rubbish. Partly my views on it have been formed by years of using Google. I get the results I expect to see when I type something into that, but I don’t when I use Bing.

The UK’s Prince Philip has been in hospital recently -- which isn’t a huge surprise as he is 99 years old. He underwent a heart procedure on a pre-existing condition and is currently recuperating at King Edward VII’s Hospital in London. Doctors there say he’s doing well. Bing, on the other hand, has declared him dead.

Microsoft Edge 89 arrives with improved browser performance, vertical tabs, and more

The original Microsoft Edge was often described as being 'half-baked' with features commonly found in other browsers either poorly implemented or missing entirely.

With the switch to Chromium, Microsoft had a chance to start over, and it hasn’t wasted the opportunity. The new Edge is a massive improvement over its predecessor and the software giant isn’t resting on its laurels either, striving to add new features on a regular basis. Case in point being Microsoft Edge 89.

Future versions of Google Chrome set to arrive much quicker

If you’re a Chrome user, you’ll probably be used to the frequency with which Google pushes out new versions. The search giant has been delivering new milestone releases every six weeks for over a decade now.

That’s about to change, however. Google already rolls out security updates on a bi-weekly basis, and this has inspired the company to speed up the general release cycle, ensuring we’ll get access to new features much quicker than before.
