Microsoft Is Ending Support For the Old Non-Chromium Edge

Support for Microsoft’s original Edge browser is ending today. Legacy Edge, as it is now called, will no longer receive security updates, and anyone still using it should start the process of switching to something else. The Verge reports:

Legacy Edge was originally codenamed "Spartan" and was included with Windows 10 as the operating system’s default web browser before it was officially named Edge. The Edge mantle is being taken up by Microsoft’s Chromium-based browser, which was in beta throughout 2019 and officially launched in January 2020. This means Edge (the old Edge, that is) survived just over a year alongside its replacement. Microsoft also says Legacy Edge will automatically be removed by the April Windows 10 update, with the new Edge being installed in its stead.
