According to Windows Central, Microsoft could soon switch to a Chrome-based browser in Windows 10.
The publication says the project is called Anaheim and speculates that it would appear in the 19H1 development cycle.
If the coverage is true, it would be the final capitulation of a company that outsmarted the Internet and tried to evolve it after its victory in the browser war of the 2000s.

Two years ago, I wrote on the same topic:
Remember the days when designers and developers were interested only in what their website looked like in IE6, and how rendering in Mozilla or Opera browsers could not interest them or wanted? These days are quickly coming back as mobile sites improve their experience with WebKit browsers.
You would think we learned the last time.
The mobile Internet is dominated by Chrome and Safari, so Firefox still does not do a full Google search. Firefox users get an inferior version that does not have the toolbar to narrow the date search.
"We are focused on providing a great browsing experience and continue to work to improve it." For all users, "a Google spokesperson told ZDNet in July.
" Firefox uses the Gecko Engine, which requires extensive testing of all our features to ensure compatibility since it is different from WebKit (used by Chrome), Safari, UC, Opera). We did this for Firefox desktops, but not the same level of testing for mobile phones. "
Firefox is said to hold only 5 percent of mobile web usage, anecdotally, there are many sites on the web where you can see the design and the programmer does not have the page in Safari or Chrome opened on their Mac.
Although the desktop may look different, it suffers from the same issue as the Blink / WebKit monoculture: When Chrome and Safari decide To do something, Mozilla and Microsoft must follow to maintain compatibility.  As a banished web developer from the turn of the century, there is little glee about the possible sinking of Edge The Web needs alternative renderers to prevent companies from controlling the web and moving it in directions that are only for commercial interests and not that Serving the Common Good.
The Web requires Microsoft through its own rendering engine and Microsoft should decide to do so in web to link web future for the Chromium tape train, it will be IE6 again.
