It was rumored on Dec. 4 and then confirmed on Dec. 6 that Microsoft is giving up on its EdgeHTML rendering engine and embracing Google's Chromium for its Edge browser. Now we're hearing more detail about what to expect in terms of support as part of that transition. By switching to the Chromium rendering engine, Microsoft is cutting down on the amount of testing developers need to do for their websites and apps, but there's also an opportunity to embrace features other browsers using Chromium already enjoy. As part of a discussion on Reddit about the Edge engine switch, Edge Project Manager Kyle Alden, confirmed one of those features is Chrome extensions.

Remember the browser wars? In 1995, Microsoft launched Internet Explorer and started bundling it with Windows in order to snatch away market share from the then-dominant browser, Netscape. It worked — in the early naughts, all everyone ever used for browsing was Internet Explorer.  But then came the alternatives: Firefox in 2004 and Google's Chrome 2008. These browsers were faster and more advanced than Internet Explorer and they slowly chipped away at Microsoft's browser market share, prompting Microsoft to essentially kill IE in 2015 and replace it with Edge.  Now, however, we may be near the point in which Microsoft throws in the towel and switches to a browser based on Chromium, Google's open-source browser project upon which Chrome (and several other browser, like Brave or Opera) is built.  Read more...More about Microsoft, Google Chrome, Web Browser, Browser, and Chromium

A warehouse filled with huge gleaming silver vats hums around the clock, as billions of yeast cells work to make a material we can wear, sit on and carry around. In an adjoining room, rows of benches hold molds of different shapes and sizes, where sheets of cellulose layer up and become recognizable. In the next room, the material is finished and packaged, destined for designers, tailors and upholsterers.This is the scene of a biofabrication plant, producing leather without the animals. A futuristic ideal? Companies like Modern Meadow don’t think so. As the firm’s CEO Andras Forgacs, a biofabrication pioneer, said during his 2013 TED talk: “Perhaps biofabrication is a natural evolution of manufacturing for mankind. It’s environmentally responsible, efficient and humane. It allows us to be creative: We can design new materials, new products and new facilities.”The company is gearing up to launch its...
