I really can't comment of what MS might or might not do in the future.

The gist of my "preoccupation" is related to the shrinking of the browser's engine landscape. MS is definitely going to make Chromium better, see for example:

I'm happy for that. I still think it would have been great if they had chose Servo/Firefox helping to establish at least two great different browser engines that could evolve indipendently and help foster a more "varied" web.

Developers have already started building Chrome only websites, this is not going to be solved by having the two major desktop browsers share the same engine:

Anyhow, the only thing I can do is keep Firefox as my default browser, which I'm liking very much to be honest :)

I'm sure there were tons of discussions and technical decisions that brought to that decision. I'm just talking about my personal wishes :-)

Oh yes I get your point though, I really hated this transition I really used edge as my daily driver (I still do on my machine) I just don't think it was merely a technical decision to choose chromium over servo
