Microsoft revealed a new Edge browser logo on November 3 that looks slightly different from Internet Explorer, but is very similar to Mozilla Firefox.
The new logo was found as part of a new mini surfing game hidden within Edge’s latest Canary versions.
The Edge icon was revealed in an elaborate Easter Egg hunt in which a series of puzzles and images were posted by Microsoft employees. Due to Obj model code, which was hidden in an image, puzzle solvers even had to make an Edge icon as a 3D object.
Internet Explorer, of course, dates back to 1995, and the new Edge browser, first launched 20 years later in 2015 with Windows 10, was somewhat controversial because only a flatter version of the Internet Explorer icon was released.
According to the study, the new and improved Edge was designed from the ground up using the same Chromium base as Google Chrome to make end-users and web developers more enticing..
The new logo is not actually being used, but with the cat out of the bag, we will probably see it soon in Insider builds. Furthermore, next week’s Microsoft Ignite, so there may be more news about the new Edge.
Microsoft has also announced a Chromium Edge Bug Bounty Program in which the company has invited experts from around the world to find vulnerabilities in the Chromium Edge browser, ranging from $1,000 to $30,000, according to a study.
