A recently published report shared how major web browsers like Google Chrome and Firefox were losing share in the web browser market and so as the Microsoft Edge that is also not able to grow its presence beside all the pushing from the tech giant Microsoft. No matter which web browser you consider like Google Chrome, Opera or Brave, all of these uses the same underlying technology i.e. Chrome’s Blink engine to render the internet. It seems that Microsoft has realized the dominance of Chrome and is now looking forward to embracing the technology after relying long on Internet Explorer.
Microsoft is now considering to work upon a completely new web browser for the web for Windows 10, where the new project is codenamed ‘Anaheim’ which is said to replace Microsoft Edge browser which was running on Microsoft in-house developed EdgeHTML engine.
What’s interesting is that Microsoft is now considering the bigger picture, which is to make the experience of Windows 10 better for the users without reinventing the wheel. Taking advantage of Chrome’s open-source Blink engine, Microsoft would be confident to solve the issue for developers who were always concerned about how their web-pages would render on Microsoft Edge/Internet Explorer, as Blink based new browser would somehow offer the similar rendering as in Google Chrome.

Last year Microsoft announced Edge browser for Android, based upon Google’s Blink engine allowing it to offer unique features like ‘Continue on PC’ and ‘built-in ad blocking’. Currently, there is very less that we know about the Anaheim project while as per a popular online tech website, the project might get launched in upcoming April or later.
