Microsoft Edge is dumping its old icon for a new cresting-wave look that might get you thinking about surfing the web while still reminding you of the old lowercase “e” logo dating back to Internet Explorer.

A series of Microsoft Edge team teases ahead of Microsoft’s Ignite conference next week revealed the new icon. The new icon is a hybrid of the old lowercase “e” icon that dates back to Microsoft’s old Internet Explorer years and a crashing wave that might have something to do with surfing the web.

Microsoft is setting to rebuild its Edge browser as a variation of Google’s open-source Chromium project. The Chromium-based Edge is at beta testing stage right now. Ever since Chrome vaulted past all the other browsers since its advent in 2008, Microsoft has been trying but failing to reclaim its influence.

Microsoft stripped down its old Internet Explorer (IE) into the new Edge but even the modernized approach didn’t help. So now Microsoft is throwing out the browser engine on which its old Edge was based and swapping in Chromium. That’s what’s used by several other browsers, too, including Samsung Internet, Vivaldi Technologies’ Vivaldi and Brave Software’s Brave. Microsoft’s new Chromium-based Edge is available far beyond Windows, too, including on Android and MacOS.

But on release of the new icon, the first thing that people noticed was its familiarity in design to something else- the infamous Tide pods.

Others joked that Edge, which is a Chromium-based browser, is really just Chrome in disguise. Of course, rather than seeing Chrome underneath, at least one keen observer pointed out the logo’s surface resemblance to Firefox’s logo.  But, at the end of the day, it is refreshing to see that the Edge browser is finally getting the overhaul that it was long due for.
