Posted by Anthony Haines on March 18, 2018 02:26:14 Microsoft Edge, the web browser built by Microsoft and designed for desktops and mobile devices, has been removed from the Windows Store, ending months of speculation over its future.
Microsoft confirmed to PC Gamer that Edge has been discontinued for good.
Microsoft Edge is now only available on the Microsoft Edge Edge Web Store, and the company has removed all support for the browser from its online services.
Microsoft’s official announcement of the news was accompanied by a brief statement, but did not explain why Edge has now been discontinued.
“We can confirm that Microsoft Edge has ceased development and will no longer be maintained on the Windows Insider Program,” the company said in its statement.
“The End User License Agreement for the Edge Web site will remain in effect.
Microsoft has also discontinued all support and support resources for Microsoft Edge on Windows.
The End User Licensing Agreement for Microsoft Windows has expired. “
Users can no longer access Microsoft Edge via the Windows Marketplace.
The End User Licensing Agreement for Microsoft Windows has expired.
Microsoft will continue to maintain support for Microsoft Office, including Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Outlook, and Microsoft SharePoint.”
Microsoft’s statement was accompanied with a list of “promotional options” for Microsoft’s Edge Web service, which includes a subscription plan that allows customers to get up-to-date versions of the web client on the cloud and download additional content.
Microsoft announced earlier this month that Edge would no longer work on Windows 10.
“This is a major loss for Microsoft and our customers,” said David Hercberg, the general manager of Microsoft Edge at Symantec.
Microsoft declined to comment further, but a Microsoft spokesperson told PC Gamer on Tuesday that Microsoft has not stopped supporting Edge. “
While it was not clear when or how Microsoft would end support for Edge, it will no more be supported by the Windows 10 community.”
Microsoft declined to comment further, but a Microsoft spokesperson told PC Gamer on Tuesday that Microsoft has not stopped supporting Edge.
“At the end of April, Microsoft stopped supporting Microsoft Edge in our marketplace, which has not changed,” the spokesperson said.
“As with any product, there will be future updates to support Microsoft Edge.”
The move comes after the company revealed it had stopped supporting Windows 10 on September 14, 2018.
Microsoft plans to release updates to Microsoft Edge over the next few weeks that will improve performance, stability, security, and security alerts.
It’s unclear how many of the Microsoft Store apps that were updated to the latest versions of Microsoft Office were affected.
Microsoft is still using Microsoft Edge for Office 365 subscriptions, but it’s now also offering the browser on its own as a subscription option on its website.
Microsoft recently announced a partnership with AOL that would allow customers to sign up for the AOL Online Business Plan, which provides a basic plan for Office365 subscriptions, as well as access to other Microsoft Office products, including Skype and Outlook.
Microsoft says that users who already have Office 365 will still be able access it.
“After Microsoft’s announcement on September 13, 2018, we’ve been listening to feedback from customers and our business customers, and have made several improvements to Office 365,” a Microsoft representative told PC Gaming.
“Today, we announced the next steps for Office, and we’re excited to announce that Office 365 is now available on Windows and on Xbox One and PC.”
