In an age where apps are everywhere, the world is becoming increasingly digital, and web browsers are the most common devices for most people to interact with content.
But the latest developments in web technologies have left web browsers at the mercy of manufacturers and software developers who are increasingly finding it difficult to support the latest web standards and APIs.
“The big web browsers for the foreseeable future are all Microsoft and Google-owned,” explained Chris Anderson, senior software engineer at Adobe.
“But with the big browsers coming up that will take a few more years to be the big ones, it’s going to be a lot more difficult to have all these standards that are going to allow us to interoperate with them.”
In other words, the web will be more like the phone or the tablet it will be dependent on manufacturers and vendors to deliver the best possible experience.
And that’s just not the case anymore, with Google’s Chrome OS and Apple’s iOS all supporting web standards but requiring developers to write their own.
“I think it’s a big question mark, and I think it will come back,” said Google’s Anderson.
Google and Apple are two of the biggest web browsers, but other companies are now joining the party as well. “
What I see is it’s an increasingly fragmented web, and it’s changing from one thing to another.”

Microsoft, Apple, and Amazon have all released new versions of their browsers recently, while Microsoft announced a new version of its web browser earlier this month.
The new version will be called Edge, and is based on Microsoft’s WebKit-based code base, while the new version for iOS, for example, will be based on the open-source Swift language.
“It’s a bit confusing because Microsoft has made an effort to get out there and talk about the new capabilities that they’re bringing to the platform,” said Anderson.
Microsoft announced Edge at its Build developer conference earlier this year, and has since released a number of other browsers based on its latest WebKit codebase.
“So it’s just a bit of an open question whether they’re going to have the same level of support as other web browsers,” said Matt Hough, senior product manager for Microsoft’s Internet Explorer team.
There’s not going to come a time where all those developers will be able and willing to use Edge, but it’s still an open door.” “
For example, the majority, the vast majority of WebKit developers are going for Chrome OS.

It’s also important to remember that the majority in this market are still using older versions of web browsers that were built in the 1990s, when web standards were still in the early stages of their development.
“Most of us still have a lot of browser-based experience today,” said Hough.
I think the majority are still doing things like email and mobile phone apps, so we’re going forward with Chrome OS.” “
And there are also a few other devices that are more like tablets and phones, like the Surface Pro 4 and the Kindle Fire, which are still in development.”

“There’s a lot that we can do to make it more robust and to make sure that it’s not an impediment to the development of Windows.” “
This will be one of the last browsers that we will support on Windows,” said Microsoft’s Hough on the Edge announcement.

The move to support new standards is one of many that Microsoft has taken in the wake of Windows 8, which debuted in 2015 and left the company with a lot to deal with when it came to the new OS.
The company has already made the switch to HTML5-based browsers like Firefox and Internet Explorer 11, and announced a number new updates to Windows 10’s operating system.
The OS version it’s targeting with Edge is the current version of Windows 10, codenamed Creators Update, which was released on October 12.
“Our current version, Windows 10 Home, is going to remain the default OS for most users in 2019,” said Andy Rubin, senior vice president of product management and Microsoft’s Windows platform.
In 2019, we’ll be making the switch from Windows 10 to Edge, which we think
