It’s not a good year to be Internet Explorer. While it’s been the butt of many jokes over the past years, it was at least the default browser for every computer that ran Windows. With Windows 10, however, that changed to Microsoft’s new Edge browser. Internet Explorer is still installed along with Windows 10. It’s just that Edge uses less processing power, is faster than Chrome according to JavaScript benchmarks, has the ability to take notes on a webpage, and even has that virtual assistant technology named Cortona right in it. Now it might be Internet Explorer’s end in the console realm. According to Twitter, Xbox One users will eventually have Edge on their consoles as well.

So far there’s no word on whether the Xbox One’s Microsoft Edge will have the same features as its PC comrade or whether they’ll be thinned somewhat for the console. Being that Microsoft has come out in saying that the Xbox One is “literally a Windows machine,” we should expect to see much more integration between the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC’s. There is no set release date for Microsoft Edge on the Xbox One.
