Microsoft's Edge web browser roadmap includes more Cortana scenarios, extensions

Mark Hachman | May 8, 2015
Although Microsoft is working toward a summer release date to ship its Edge browser, the company also plans to continue adding features. The Edge team revealed some of those plans during its first Edge Web Summit for developers on Tuesday.

Microsoft's developer site also has a long list of features that have either been approved, are under consideration, or have been rejected. Among those that Microsoft are considering for Edge include an ambient light event, which would adjust the format of a Web page depending on whether you're in bright sun or darkened room; access to vibration controls; media recording, and more.

Microsoft executives also made clear that EdgeHTML, the engine that enables web games that could boost your Xbox gamerscore, is the name of the rendering engine, not a separate, proprietary version of the HTML markup language.
