it would be nice to lock some feature to edgium, for prevent google to just steal all your work (exemple cortana integration, smartscreen integration, etc).

 

Yes, it nice to help chromium to work better with windows, but it would be nice to also protect edge from google.

@Deleted - Yeah I hear ya. I use the Canary version of Google Chrome's browser and it's a little bit better and less "Google-whelming". If I could I would use Chromium solo for that side, but it's a pain having to manually update/reinstall it with every new daily release and it has missing codec. Edge original is still my default browser as IE had been before that since the mid-90s. Being that Google is the butter to Chromium's bread I don't think we'll ever get out from under Google no matter what type of Chromium model of browser we used. It reminds me of the Pre-IE era when Netscape Navigator dominated the browser market and it was like no matter were you went online (as primitive online was back in 1994-96ish) there was Nestcape....it held like 80 - 90 percent of the browser market and no matter where you went online you couldn't escape seeing it or hearing it (and AOL lol). Netscape and AOL in 1994-96 was like the Google of today. However I have major respect for Google/Chrome and Microsoft in the sense they try to fight against child pornography and children trafficking online. https://www.icmec.org/press/google-joins-industry-wide-movement-to-combat-child-pornography/

You are absolutely right there...
Not all changes are going to be committed back to the Chromium project. While the common things which help improve all the Chromium browsers would be committed back, like scrolling, accessibility, Touch support etc, the MSFT specific services like Cortana, SmartScreen etc, are locked down to Edge code itself...

@Rohit Yadav - Right. Cortana, SmartScree, and other Microsoft are locked down to Edge. Just like Google's browser has specifics lock down too Chrome. Google and Microsoft are sharing the same open source prime (Chromium) but each taking it in their own direction. Chrome doesn't look a whole lot different than Chromium in appearance. However Microsoft is doing a stellar job in making their browser look balanced, clean, and easy to use. Microsoft could of simply cloned Chromium into the new Edge and threw in in a few Microsoft tabs and called it day but they didn't instead building a really nice user cleaner and organized browser. I've seen some posts of people asking why this or that isn't or hasn't yet been added yet it could be months or longer before certain new things are added. Google Chrome has been out since 2008 and they're still adding things to this day using the same (Canary, Dev, Beta, Stable line of chain) user informer format Microsoft is now using for their new version
