The new Microsoft Edge is built on the Chromium open source project which also powers Google’s Chrome browser. With Microsoft adopting Chromium, developers will benefit from spending less time on interoperability because of seamless webrtc integration with other popular browsers including, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, and has reduced the potential for security related issues.
We put the browser through hundreds of automated tests and verified all our internal apps work as expected. Furthermore, Microsoft Edge performed just as well as Google’s Chrome browser, using a similar amount of RAM and CPU.
At Twilio, our priority is to support the most popular browsers for our customers. Supporting Microsoft Edge is a step in that direction as this browser will play a big part in Microsoft’s continued web first application delivery and its Office 365 offering.
We can't wait to see what you build!
