    It is possible that Microsoft will release a 3rd web browser for Windows 10 when Internet Explorer 11, and Microsoft Edge web browser becomes less popular, or not compatible and work poorly with newer website designs where the website owner did not design their site to work well with IE and Edge, or IE and Edge does not have a required feature which Chrome and Firefox has.

    If not enough people use Internet Explorer, and Edge, some of these websites may stop supporting IE and Edge. Microsoft may need to make a whole new web browser which uses the Blink web browser layout engine which is use in Google Chrome, Chromium, Opera, Vivaldi, Brave, Slimjet, etc. Microsoft can also use the Webkit web browser engine which is used in older versions of Google Chrome, Apple Safari, and lesser known browsers like Midori web browsers.

    Microsoft may need to change the name of their web browsers because Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Edge have a bad reputation with many PC users who say IE and Edge are slow, unreliable, and less secure compared to Firefox and Chromium .

    I thought IE was dead? Sure you can use it but they pretty much push edge onto you.

    I doubt they will release another one, if it does it will most likely be junk.

    I think there are still occasional security and reliability updates for IE 11 in Windows 10. Some people may still use IE 11 in Windows 10 if they need to use an older ActiveX or plug-in which only work in IE.

    I think Microsoft Xbox may release fun web browsers like a Halo themed web browsers based on Edge.

    I haven't looked into myself, but I hear MS won't allow firefox or chrome to be downloaded through their IE or edge browsers in the near future.

    I think Windows 10 S won't support running programs like Firefox and Chrome which you usually download with a web browser like Edge.

    Windows 10 S can only install Windows Store Apps found in the Store App in Windows 10 S.
