Hello together,

Although I know this place might not be the correct one to ask this kind of questions and I also know, that the are different opinions on my question but I “just” wanted to get a somewhat official statement of Microsoft:

Is MS planning or at least willing to open source the legacy version of Microsoft Edge in the future like they did with ChakraCore?

By Microsoft Edge (legacy) I mean everything including the UI, the *.pdf and *.epub reader and the EdgeHTML Engine as well as the remaining private part of Chakra.

Personally, I’d really like to see those things; possibly “read-only open source” like MS did with the .Net Framework…
