MJFChat: Microsoft’s Chromium-based Edge for IT Pros

You can find a transcript of the conversation, here.

We’ve started a new, twice-monthly interview show on Petri.com that will cover topics of interest to our tech-professional audience. We are calling this show “MJFChat.”

In my role as Petri’s Community Magnate, I will be interviewing a variety of IT-savvy folks. Some of these will be Petri contributors; some will be tech-company employees; some will be IT pros. We will be tackling various subject areas in the form of 30-minute audio interviews. I will be asking the questions, the bulk of which we’re hoping will come from you, our Petri.com community of readers.

We will ask for questions a week ahead of each chat. Readers can post their suggested questions in the designated “MJFChat” area in our Petri.com forums. Once the interviews are completed, we will post the audio and associated transcript in the forums for readers to digest at their leisure.

Our next MJFChat, scheduled for Monday, August 5, is between me and Russell Smith, a regular contributor to Petri.com and an IT consultant, trainer and author. The general topic of our chat is what IT pros need to know about Microsoft’s Chromium-based Edge browser. “Chredge” has been available to testers for a few months on a variety of platforms (Windows 10, 8.1/8, 7 and macOS) in both the Canary and Dev channels.

We want you to submit your best questions ahead of our chat here in the forums. Smith will no doubt cover Chromium-based Edge’s IE Mode; how to automate its deployment and management; which current Edge security features will be ported to Chredge and more.

If you know someone you’d like to see interviewed on the MJFChat show, including yourself, send me a note at [email protected]. (Let me know why you think this person would be an awesome guest and what topics you’d like to see covered.) We’ll take things from there….
