Hi, is there any way to get hold of Edge(Chromium based) source? I am interested in diffing it with the stock chromium source to learn more about differences.

I have looked around and can't see any way of getting hold of it.

Wouldn't Chromium's open source license mandate making Edge's source available seeing as it's a derivative?

@Joel Yang 

I was under the impression that this would only give the original Chromium source that Edge was derived from.

I wasn't going to download 3.6GB only to get the unmodified chromium source.

Are you sure this contains Microsoft's modifications?

Thanks.

Yes, I know someone who built successfully.
