    <p>So New Edge = Nedge ? Having said that – really like it (running Canary).</p>

    <p>I use the term "the new Edge," and now refer to the old Edge as "classic Edge."</p><p><br></p>

        <blockquote><em><a href="#424460">In reply to Winner:</a></em></blockquote><p>Except Coke Classic was beloved. Things will really have to be bad for New Edge if MS has to revert to Classic Edge.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#424368">In reply to paul-thurrott:</a></em></blockquote><p>"A rose by any other name…" Once released to production, hopefully, this whole unnecessary naming distraction will end. Personally, the Edge concepts are good and Microsoft's strength in bringing the application features is really showing now!. The direction they are taking to bring in Internet Explorer within edge, and the ability to deprecate IE with Edge on servers is fantastic for enterprise customers </p>

    <p>I agree. It's "Chredge," for heaven's sake.</p>

    <p>"It is still Edge." – No, it's not. It's an entirely new application. Microsoft just made the mistake to keep the branding.</p>

    <p>New Edge's beating heart is Chromium. Whatever lipstick MS tack ontop, it's still Chromium. So, Credge, Edgium, whatever you like, it doesn't matter. I think it's funny, and something MS will struggle to shake off.</p>

    <p>Entirely agree. It's Edge not Credge or Edgium or New Edge or Chredge. Vivaldi uses Chromium and so does Opera. Big deal. Edge is now using a new engine but it's still Edge. If I take the engine out of my Mustang and put in a Volvo engine, I'm not going to rename my car a Mustvo or a Volvang. haha…</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#427567">In reply to gregoryp:</a></em></blockquote><p>Actually there's a whole group of people that put mustang engines and transmissions in Volvo 240's. And they call them Volstang's. Really you can look it up.</p>
