Microsoft’s internal concept Edge browser looks a lot like Firefox
Microsoft’s Edge Browser Just Wants to be Like Firefox
Microsoft has been trying to reinvent their web browsers for years, but they’ve never quite been able to reach the same level of popularity as Mozilla’s Firefox. Now, it looks like Microsoft is trying to take a page out of Firefox’s playbook with the concept of their upcoming Edge browser.
Edge’s Internal Concept Draws Heavily from Firefox
The internal concept of Edge looks remarkably similar to Firefox. It’s got a customizable menu bar with links to popular websites and services like YouTube, Amazon, and Microsoft’s suite of Office 365 tools. This menu bar is at the top of the browser, just like Firefox — but Edge also adds an integrated search box.
Edge’s layout also tries to mimic Firefox’s design. There are tabs in the top, just like Firefox, but in Edge, these tabs are spaced apart, instead of filling the entire width of the browser window. Additionally, Edge also has sidebars on both the right and the left that give you easy access to bookmarks and other tools.
Mr. Softy is So Dedicated To Its Cause
It’s clear that Microsoft is going to great lengths to make their new Edge browser as much like Firefox as possible. Unfortunately, Microsoft still has a long way to go in order to really catch up to where Firefox is. Firefox has been around for a long time and is an incredibly well-known and respected name in the web browser market.
Looks Are Deceiving
Although Microsoft has certainly put in a lot of effort to make Edge look like Firefox, there are some key differences that set it apart. For example, Edge has its own native Windows 10 implementation and works with Microsoft’s artificial intelligence-powered Cortana. It also allows for mobile integration and syncing across multiple devices.
The Final Verdict
Microsoft’s Edge browser may look similar to Firefox, but it’s certainly got its own unique features and benefits. Whether Microsoft will be able to compete with Firefox remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure: they’re certainly putting in the effort to try!
So, who do we think will win the browser wars? We’ll just have to wait and see!
