    1. I thought Microsoft would begin to push out Edge Chromium in a Windows update so as to better market this new and much improved browser. Instead they seem fine with just having users download and install it themselves. The market share is so little I guess it really doesn’t much matter. Microsoft seem intent to offer a decent browser with Edge Chromium. But they obviously are not going to force it onto your device anytime soon.
