Microsoft EdgeYou may have heard that Microsoft are busy working on their successor to the widely criticized Windows 8 operating system; Windows 10 (what happened to Windows 9 we hear you ask? Well, apparently, Microsoft were worried that people would confuse it with Windows 95 or 98!)

Along with Windows 10, Microsoft have been developing a brand new web browser that will be the successor to their long running Internet Explorer web browser (although both browsers will be included in Windows 10). The name of Microsoft’s new flagship browser for Windows 10 is Microsoft Edge, and yesterday Microsoft announced the release date for Windows 10 as being July 29th 2015.

Microsoft Edge

We’re pleased to announce that as well as continuing to support our Web Based Room Booking & Resource Scheduling, MIDAS, in all major web browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Safari), we’ll be adding Microsoft Edge to that list as well!

We’ve already been testing MIDAS in the preview builds of Edge, and we’ve been impressed with what we’ve seen so far – Edge offers noticeable performance improvements over Internet Explorer.

The good news is that the current version of MIDAS (v4.09) will work with Edge right out of the metaphorical box! So if you’re keen to upgrade to Windows 10 (which, by the way is a FREE upgrade for Windows 7/8 users within the first year of Windows 10’s release!) but are worried about compatibility issues with MIDAS, then fear not! – we’ve got you covered!
