Microsoft just released preview versions of its Chromium-powered Edge browser today. If you’ve downloaded it to test it, you’ve probably noticed it’s very stable and performs surprisingly well. It even performs better than Google’s own Chrome browser on Windows 10, despite being built on the same Chromium open-source project. While it’s early days for Microsoft’s new Edge, the company has revealed all of the Google services it has replaced or removed from its new Chromium-powered browser to optimize performance.

Microsoft has removed or replaced more than 50 of Google’s services that come as part of Chromium, including things like ad blocking, Google Now, Google Cloud Messaging, and Chrome OS-related services.

I'm actually looking forward to trying it out.  I haven't been able to get past the middle-click problem in Brave, and Vivaldi seems to be slower than it used to be, so I'm back to Chrome.

Who knew, right?  I'm not sure if there was some sort of Chrome hooks in there for that or something.
