Microsoft unveils a new Edge browser logo that no longer looks like Internet Explorer



Microsoft is updating the logo for their Chromium-based Edge browser. The software giant originally introduced its Edge icon more than four years ago, and it's fair to say it's a logo that stuck to Internet Explorer's past. The new Microsoft logo has been unveiled as part of a new surfing mini-game hidden inside the latest Edge Canaries. It looks like a wave and incorporates a similar Fluent Design style to the company's new Office icons.

The logo also spells out the letter e, but no longer looks like Internet Explorer and looks much more modern as a result. Microsoft is obviously breaking away from the tradition here with its move to the Chromium version of Edge, and it will be interesting to hear why the company chose this particular design.


The Edge icon was revealed in a complex Easter egg hunt where Microsoft employees posted cryptic clues to a series of puzzles and images. The puzzle solvers even had to present an Edge icon as a 3D object, thanks to the Obj model code that was hidden in the image. It all led to a series of words found in seven clues, which were then typed into the Javascript feature on the Microsoft Edge Insider website. This revealed which words should be downloaded from the video for the final instructions for finding the secret surfing game (edge: // surf /) and the new logo when you finish it.

The secret edge surfing game is very similar to SkiFree, a classic ski game that was released as part of Microsoft Entertainment Pack 3 for Windows in 1991. You use WASD on a keyboard to navigate around, avoiding obstacles or threatening octopus tentacles and raising speed and shields along the way. [19659005] Now we are waiting to hear when Microsoft will release the final version of its Edge Chromium browser. The software maker released a beta in August, and a stable version recently appeared on the web. Microsoft is holding its Ignite conference in Orlando next week, and given the new logo, it is likely that we will hear more about the release date very soon.
