Microsoft confirmed the leaks that they will be using Google’s Chromium web rendering engine for the Edge browser, and would be contributing their developer expertise to evolving the Chromium and other open source web engines.

VentureBeat has asked Google and Mozilla, the non-profit behind the Firefox browser, what they thought of the announcement.  Not afraid of being embraced and extended by Microsoft, Google has welcomed the move, saying:

“Chrome has been a champion of the open web since inception and we welcome Microsoft to the community of Chromium contributors. We look forward to working with Microsoft and the web standards community to advance the open web, support user choice, and deliver great browsing experiences.”

Mozilla, on the other hand, was not encouraged, and painted themselves as the last bastion of the free web, saying:

“This just increases the importance of Mozilla’s role as the only independent choice. We are not going to concede that Google’s implementation of the web is the only option consumers should have. That’s why we built Firefox in the first place and why we will always fight for a truly open web.”
