Chromium and Edge: here we come!

We've recently announced that the new versions of Edge will be built on Chromium:

I'm very enthusiastic about the future potential and have spearheaded a new project that requires some nontrivial integration into the new codebase.

But as someone who has worked on Internet Explorer and now Edge since XP SP2, there is also a sense of loss. I've worked everywhere in the old code, from the UI to DOM to layout to the display tree, touch, security features, etc. It's impossible to know it all because this is such a large and complex project, but I have deep horizontal knowledge.

Anyway, just had to get that off my chest.
