Rumour: Microsoft to fix Edge’s biggest problem with Redstone 3

We have been complaining over the last few months that, despite the improvements Microsoft has made to the Edge browser during the Creators Update, this was simply not enough to make it the default browser for more than a handful of users.

The issue is that Microsoft can simply not keep up with the torrid pace of innovation in Google Chrome when they only update their browser twice per year during major OS updates.

This is due to the app not being a Windows Store app, but according to a new report from Neowin.net, sourced from insiders, Microsoft will be addressing this in the September Redstone 3 Windows 10 update.

The app is heading to the store, and this would allow Microsoft to make as many updates as needed to the Edge browser to make it more competitive, an approach we saw working to great effect with the Groove music client, though of course there are no guarantees this will indeed be the case.

Of course, many apps rely on the stability of the Edge rendering engine, and Microsoft has said last year that even though they may update the browser independently, they are still likely to save rendering engine updates for major versions.

Still, if this means Edge will finally actually remember my set aside tabs instead of forgetting the collection as soon as I restore them I would be pretty happy.
