Microsoft, in In December 2018, Microsoft announced their decision intention to adopt the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on of the desktop.

This change was intended to create better web compatibility for our customersusers, and less fragmentation of the web for all web developers. The Microsoft Edge Insider provides Microsoft Edge preview builds which are ready for users to try.

Microsoft began making contributions back to Chromium in areas like accessibility, touch, ARM64 and others. Their plan is to continue working working directly with the teams at Google and in Chromium rather than creating a parallel project. Both Teams from Microsoft and Google engineers have been working together to improve the underlying Chromium project so that Chrome and Edge run better on Windows. Microsoft has had around 150 commits accepted into Chromium, paving the way for improvements to Edge and Chromium on Windows 10 . That includes improving accessibility, smooth scrolling support, Windows Hello integration, and things like ensuring the touch keyboard shows up reliably.
