Microsoft has a new browser that they are calling Microsoft Edge, Mike was talking with me and wondered aloud if they would go after Edge.com ? Three years ago there was an existing business on Chrome.com and Google decided to make them an offer and purchased the domain. Mike wrote about that here.
Now Edge.com is also an existing business and not sitting there parked or owned by a domain investor. The company Edge Systems LLC was founded in 1985.
From the homepage:
Founded in 1985, Edge Systems provides comprehensive Enterprise Content Management (ECM) Solutions to government and commercial customers. Using our IMEDGE family of imaging and document management products as a foundation, we provide the ability to manage a wide variety of electronic objects, including images, office documents, graphics, voice, video, e-mail, web content, and other information assets. In essence, Edge provides a comprehensive information resource management system that improves productivity, efficiency and customer satisfaction while reducing ongoing IT maintenance efforts related to enterprise content management
The other interesting piece of the name puzzle is MicrosoftEdge.com, it was registered in January by someone in China who does not look to be affiliated with the company in anyway. UDRP in 10…9…8 ?
