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…

It would be truly useful for not using Chrome "Blink" engine for stealing Webkit from Apple I'd rather use IE but I am forced to use Chromium Edge it's pure crap and I don't want to use it anymore I am forced to and this I am typing right now. It's best if we continue to keep on using the Legacy Edge and continue it's path developing stuff with proper privacy and not a company that thinks that a Advertisement can live with us NO it's a something that is trying to make money on us ALTHOUGH ALL BROWSERS IN MICROSOFT STORE are using EdgeHTML engine just wanting the original one so that I can have access to Incognito/Inprivate browsing.
