Microsoft Edge browser gets a brand new logo

Share

Microsoft is now working towards the Edge browser based on Google's Chromium open-source engine.

Microsoft is expected to unveil the new logo and new features for the Edge browser at the company's developer-focused Ignite conference which kicks off tomorrow.

Seen in the featured image above, and as reported by The Verge's Tom Warren, this new icon is shaped like a lowercase "e". Edge's new icon embraces Microsoft's fluent design principles, and brings it in line with the look of Office apps - and its swirly look also brings to mind the curls of the Firefox icon.

A new browser deserves a new logo, and Microsoft has revealed a radically refreshed bit of artwork to go alongside the Chromium-based version of Microsoft Edge. The main objective of the Microsoft Edge browser is to tap the market share on non-Windows devices and also to compete with Vivaldi and Opera.

The Nationals entered the seventh inning trailing by two runs, but Anthony Rendon hit a solo home run to cut the deficit in half. In 1924, the Washington Senators, now the Minnesota Twins, defeated the New York Giants four games to three.

When Edge arrived in 2015, the browser's logo acknowledged Internet Explorer's history by using an "E" with a loop cutting through rather than around.

The change, however, was not without its fair share of criticism. That said, Microsoft has not yet announced a release version.

According to Statcounter, Google Chrome accounts for 68.91% of global internet browser market share. Edge is at a distant fourth with 4.51% share and is followed by Internet Explorer at 4.45%.
