If they were to follow through and finish this, I feel like this could be a possible rival against some popular browsers if they play their cards right. If the speed and resources are marginally better than others, then I'll take it (along with customization and better navigation for plugins and addons).

I don't see this as a "cash grab" of some sort, I mostly see this as more or less of a way for users who are used to windows 10, to branch out into the older versions (although I thought they discontinued support for windows 7).
