  Microsoft Edge is a [web browser](/categories/web-browser) developed by Microsoft. Edge includes integration with Cortana and has extensions hosted on the Microsoft Store. Unlike [Internet Explorer](/software/internet-explorer/), Edge does not support the legacy ActiveX and BHO technologies. Originally built with Microsoft's own EdgeHTML and Chakra engines, in 2019 Edge was rebuilt as a [Chromium](/software/chromium-web-browser/)-based browser, using the Blink and V8 engines. Though, for iOS, Microsoft Edge is based on WebKit. Microsoft released the first [Chromium](/software/chromium-web-browser/)-based Edge version on January 15, 2020.
