So why now Microsoft’s new edge offensive? We asked our Windows expert Jörg Geiger. He confirms first that Edge has not really taken off so far, even though Windows 10 is now the most popular desktop operating system. “The idea now is to redirect resources from unimportant apps like Weather or Finance to Edge, so strengthen the browser. I think it’s good because I’m not a fan of too many included apps anyway, “says Geiger about CHIP. And from an entrepreneurial point of view, the step makes sense from his point of view: simple, because Edge still misses much, in order to be able to compete seriously with Firefox and Chrome.
