After joining the Chromium camp in 2018, not only has the newly built Edge browser been recognized and supported by many users around the world, but Microsoft’s reverse output has improved the development of the Chromium community. Last year, Google received a number of Microsoft submissions and digested them into Chrome browsers, including extended battery life, enhanced scrolling features and more.
On Chromium and the new Edge browser, Microsoft also actively contributes to and tests new modern Web controls, including text boxes, bullet lists, check boxes, calendars, password display programs, and other elements you often see in web pages.
Last year, Microsoft added new controls to Chromium to provide a unified, modern look across all web pages. These controls are now available online in the Edge browser, not only improving the interaction experience, but also being more user-friendly to touch devices and optimizing accessibility.
Microsoft has submitted these improvements to the Chromium platform and allowed other browsers that use Chromium to take advantage of modern Web controls. In the Chrome 81 update log that has been deleted, Google confirms that similar improvements will be made. This means That Chrome can take advantage of those modern Web controls on Windows 10, Linux, macOS and Android.
Pete LePage, a Google developer advocate, said: “I was very impressed by Microsoft’s work to improve the look of form controls, and I’m delighted to see it appear in Chrome 81 on Windows, Chrome OS and Linux. Mac and Android support is coming soon. “
