Microsoft Edge Chromium Connection Endpoints

The List of Microsoft Edge Chromium Connection Endpoints

Starting with very first releases of Windows 10, Microsoft was often criticized by a huge number of users, and even by government agencies in certain countries like Netherlands for intensive data collection via the built-in diagnostics and telemetry services. In response, Microsoft had published the list of endpoints Windows 10 connects to after a clean install. Shortly after the release of the stable version of Edge Chromium Microsoft has provided the similar list for Edge.

The new Edge browser is built on Chromium. It no longer uses EdgeHTML but Chromium as standard, which will work with Chrome extensions, a similar browsing experience to Chrome and a familiar look.

The browser has been redesigned from scratch, so you'll find it works less like the legacy Microsoft Edge and more like Google's Chrome and other browsers. It's got tracking protection built in, Picture in Picture video, 4K video support for streaming websites, and lots more. The move to Chromium is key – it has allowed Microsoft to support Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, alongside macOS, Linux (coming in the future) and mobile apps on iOS and Android. The browser is much more universal, easier and quicker to use and is compatible with more websites.
