Support for the old version of Microsoft Edge will end on March 9, 2021, which means no more security updates for the unpopular successor to Internet Explorer. To keep Windows users safe, Microsoft will uninstall the unsupported version of Edge on April 13, 2021 and replace it with the Chromium-based one.

The replacement will be part of the Windows 10 cumulative monthly security update (also referred to as the Update Tuesday release). “When you apply this update to your devices, the out of support Edge Legacy desktop application will be removed, and the new Edge will be installed,” explains Microsoft on its website.

Windows users who have already installed the Chromium version won’t notice any difference because the latest Edge installer automatically removes the legacy version at the end of the installation process.

“The new Edge offers built-in security and our best interoperability with the Microsoft security ecosystem, all while being more secure than Chrome for businesses on Windows 10,” the company adds.

Users who would like to run Edge Legacy and the new Edge as a side-by-side experience can skip the update, but Microsoft advises against it, stating that Windows cumulative monthly security updates provide important updates to the Windows 10 operating system.

The Chromium-based version of Edge was released on January 15, 2020. Since then, the combined market share of the legacy and new versions grew to nearly 8 percent, earning Microsoft the second-biggest chunk of the web browser pie, after Google Chrome (nearly 70 percent).

One of the biggest advantages of the Chromium-based version of Edge is its support for Google Chrome extensions alongside Edge-specific extensions hosted by Microsoft. After enabling the “Allow extensions from other stores” switch in Settings, users can go to the Chrome Web Store and download any extension they want.

Due to environmental and safety regulations, as well as rising costs of insurance and fuel, the cost of car ownership has never been higher. While modern public transportation systems in many countries already provide an attractive alternative, the recent COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted their limitations. Fortunately, there’s another option available: long-term car renting, and McKinsey predicts that it will generate almost 30 percent of the automotive industry’s revenue by 2030 thanks to startups like Carasti, which has just launched its service following a successful pre-Series A funding round last month.

Based in Dubai, Carasti describes itself as an all-inclusive car subscription app that removes all the hassle associated with car ownership, such as service and maintenance, while preserving all the benefits.

“Our subscription model aims to make car ownership as flexible and affordable as possible, providing our customers with an easy alternative to car ownership,” explains the company’s CEO, Claudio Esposito-Aiardo. “There are no hidden costs, no extra fees, and no financial surprises. We simply don’t believe that you should be weighing yourself down with debts, bank loans, and payments just to drive a car.”

Carasti users can choose between two distinct subscription models. The month-to-month subscription model provides access to a variety of nearly new cars with a monthly, 6 month or yearly commitment. The mini lease subscription model lets users choose a 12 or 24-month plan on a brand-new car.

Regardless of which model you pick, you always have to provide only your Emirates ID, driving license, passport copy, or visa copy. All subscriptions include insurance, maintenance, roadside assistance, and flexible car switching. Carasti supports both Android and iOS devices, and your first car can be delivered to you in as little as 4 hours from downloading it.
