Genius, completely bonkers, or somewhere in between? Find out what’s driving the audacious steps in Windows UI, from decoupling the platform from the OS and supporting in-market OS versions to engineering in the open.
Moving the web forward with Microsoft Edge
The new Microsoft Edge is built on a new foundation, powered by Chromium. This session goes deeper on our plans and intentions for Microsoft Edge, the Chromium open-source project, and our ongoing work in web standards communities. We discussed how we plan to become a significant contributor to Chromium in a way that will make not just Microsoft Edge, but other browsers as well, better on both PCs and other devices. You’ll also learn how this foundation will enable us to deliver a consistent set of developer tools and application experiences, built using web technologies across platforms.
