Re: Hints from FMP not showing in the Web search window

You have slightly misquoted me.

The IE core shell almost certainly is still ‘supported’.

It is IE that I said is not ‘supported’ by which I meant the user interface built on top of the core shell.


The Edge browser is not even a component of Windows, and is planned to be shipped and updated as a separate product.

You are right that it is not being ‘developed’ or ‘supported’ which just means it is getting no new features or bug fixes

I would have thought that the core shell, being, as you say, a fundamental part of the Windows User Interface, would still be subject to bug fixes. Otherwise, that's a nice channel of attack for the black hats. 


Whether the adoption of the Chrome engine in the Edge browser might affect the continued use of the IE core, I have no idea. I keep losing track of which bit the Chrome engine is an engine for! (And indeed, whether it's Chrome or Chromium!)
