Recapping yesterday’s Microsoft Edge and open source announcements

Yesterday, Joe Belfiore announced that we will be adopting the Chromium open source project for our development of Microsoft Edge. We encourage you to check out Joe’s blog post for all the details.

Alongside this announcement, we shared a document describing our open source principles and initial areas of focus. Today, we’ve posted a few more documents detailing our intent to contribute UIAutomation Provider Mappings to Chromium. We’ve also posted an update to the ChakraCore project on GitHub, clarifying the support status for that project.
