Microsoft Edge will soon be able to customize with the Google Chrome themes present in the Chrome Web Store: the novelty is actually already in distribution, but only in the Dev channel of the Microsoft browser, which is very unstable and aimed precisely at developers (or the most daring testers , If we want). It will therefore take a few more weeks before it is available in the stable version.
This is made possible by the fact that Edge has been completely rebuilt based on the source code of Chromium, the open-source browser maintained mainly by Google from which Chrome is developed, together with a large number of competitors (including Opera and Samsung Internet, among the others). Edge previously used a proprietary engine, called EdgeHTML, but the poor adoption rate prompted Microsoft to try a completely different approach.
There is already a precedent for explicit opening towards the Chrome Web Store: some time ago we told you how on the Edge extension page a link had appeared that referred to the Google store. Since the source code at the base is essentially identical, one might as well take advantage of an already large and complete database of extensions, instead of waiting to populate one's own. And the same goes for themes.
Edge's Dev build includes several other new features, including the (optional) ability to go back through the tab history using Backspace – or forward using Shift in combination. It is also possible to disable auto-complete suggestions from the history and favorites, there are permissions for websites that use AR and VR and of course there are many bug fixes and improvements.
