Microsoft is improving Chromium series browsers for better integration with Windows 10

Chromium Windows 10

Since Microsoft began to move to Google’s Chromium open-source project, Microsoft is gradually contributing its own browser features to the open-source project. For example, the smooth page scrolling and PWA progressive web applications of the original Microsoft browser have been successfully ported to the Chromium browser project. However, Microsoft also hopes to integrate the Chromium browser with Windows 10 to transfer more settings to the modern settings application.

Printer integration settings:

The current version of the Chromium browser will still call the Windows 10 traditional print dialog for print settings if it is printed. However, Microsoft has submitted new code to the project to improve it so that the Windows 10 settings application’s print options can replace traditional dialogs.

Microsoft said it is based on a simple protocol to redirect users to new print options, which are supported by all Chromium series browsers in the future. The replacement print option is what Microsoft calls modern print settings with a better UI interface, making it easier and more convenient for users to operate.

Browser proxy server integration:

If you need to set the proxy server to be set in the IE option or on the network, Chromium is still calling the IE option in Windows 10. Here Microsoft has also made improvements and has a special protocol for Chromium. When users click on the settings, they will also go to the Windows 10 settings application.

The proxy settings in the network settings are much richer than those in Internet Explorer, especially for beginners.

These adjustments are currently recognized by the Chromium project team and are already supported in Google Chrome Canary and Edge Dev/Canary. For Microsoft, the purpose of these improvements is naturally to the Microsoft Edge browser, which pushes the browser to the modern settings interface. Of course, for Google Chrome users, this is Microsoft’s benefit to joining Chromium, and it will be more convenient to use Chrome in the future.
