Microsoft to force many Windows 10 users to switch browsers next month
We’ll have a major change starting in March 2021 in terms of not only a new feature update for Windows 10 but also the timing of when you’ll have to say goodbye to one of your favorite browsers: Microsoft Edge original.
And is that while the new Microsoft Edge based on chromium is triumphing, already being the second most popular browser worldwide, the truth is that many users still continue to use the original, the one that was launched along with the Windows 10 operating system back in 2015.
Specifically, the original Edge browser will no longer receive security support from Microsoft on March 9, so from that date surfing the Internet with that browser will be a risk for the user who could see how his computer is infected when browsing certain websites.
In fact, the next major update for Windows 10, which could be released between March and June, will no longer be compatible with the original Edge, and will therefore be replaced by the new one automatically.
In any case, in view of the fact that in just four weeks the original Edge will no longer receive security support, we advise you to access the official Edge page right now and download the new one. By downloading and installing it on your operating system, the old version of this browser will disappear and you will be protected for years to come.
The new Edge browser is based on chromium, the same as Chrome, so themes and even extensions are compatible. Redmond is launching many updates for their browser in view of the good reception of the public.
