Microsoft now testing Chromium-powered Edge on Xbox


Xbox console testing has begun for the new Chromium version of Edge, Microsoft’s updated internet browser.

This browser has had positive reviews on PC, and should provide support for Chromium-powered services such as Google Stadia – though we’ll wait to see how it runs first (thanks, The Verge).

Microsoft could also explore this method of browser-based game streaming to bring its own xCloud service to Xbox consoles. In-browser testing has already begun to get the xCloud catalogue on Apple iPhones.

Currently, the new Edge Chromium browser is only available to Xbox Insider testers in the Alpha Skip-Ahead group, the first to get new features. Access then trickles down to the larger Insider groups fairly quickly as early bugs are removed.

Microsoft is set to withdraw support for its older, original version Edge on PCs this week, as it shifts its development completely onto the new Chromium version. Anyone still using the old version of Edge on Windows platforms after 13th April will be automatically upgraded.

    Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!|

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?|
