Microsoft has long since replaced the classic version of Edge with a version powered by Google's Chromium. But the changes will not stop. The company plans to review the project again.
Μια νέα προσπάθεια που ονομάζεται Phoenix οραματίζεται την ενσωμάτωση του Microsoft Edge πιο βαθιά στην εμπειρία των Windows.
Twitter user WalkingCat, who seems to be in the know, reports that Phoenix was born as a fictional version of Edge, intended to gather feedback from company employees and eventually pave the way for a massive overhaul of the browser. .
'Phoenix' was an 'imaginary' version of Edge, appeared as an internal concept video from MS User Research team, with new UI/features, it's a project to collect feedbacks internally for Edge development directions/priorities, 'Split-Screen' was the most liked feature of Phoenix🤓 pic.twitter.com/DRrLwN8x01

In this project, Microsoft is experimenting with several new ideas, such as the ability to split the screen that we recently published and allows users to open two websites side by side.
WalkingCat reports that this was the feature they liked best about the project, so it's no surprise that it appeared on Edge.
However, according to WindowsCentral, Microsoft's browser redesign efforts don't stop there. The company also wants Edge to become a more native part of Windows, and is considering turning it into a system-wide password manager.
Edge already has built-in password management options, but it could eventually become a full-featured password manager for the entire operating system. In addition, the OOBE screens could be updated to include Edge as well, so that users can configure the browser while setting up the OS.
Microsoft has so far not mentioned anything about the upcoming changes to Edge, but they are already happening gradually.
Η εταιρεία ελπίζει ότι ο Edge θα γίνει διαφορετικός από τα άλλα προγράμματα περιήγησης που υποστηρίζονται από τον Chromium και θα γίνει αναπόσπαστο μέρος της εμπειρίας των Windows. Με λίγα λόγια θέλει να ξεφορτωθεί τον Google Chrome.
