With Edge Chromium, do I need to test website rendering in Edge as well as Google Chrome?

Hello,


  1. With Microsoft Edge now using Chromium engine, are there any potential rendering differences seen between it and Google Chrome?

  2. Is there a guidance available in this regard from Microsoft of any other org?

Thanks!

Hi @jnsoneji I agree with cooldadtx's answer.

  1. I met some rendering differences between Edge Chromium and Chrome before, so it's better to test the site in both browsers.

  2. I haven't seen such guidance from Microsoft. But for the compatibility in different browsers, I think you can refer to caniuse site.

  1. Yes. Just because they use the same base source code doesn't mean each version doesn't have differences. This could be temporary such as an enhancement made in Edge that hasn't been merged back into Chromium yet or a fix in Chrome that hasn't been merged into the current version of Edge. You need to test both.

  2. I think you'll find that universally any web app developer will test all browsers that their app is designed to support, including the minimal versions of said browsers. I don't know that there is any guidelines published by MS because it is implied but I could be wrong.
