How Much Did Microsoft Contribute To Chromium Development?

There are quite a few things that Microsoft is developing in this project, and although Google Chrome and other Chromium browsers also benefit from what Microsoft provides, on the other hand, Microsoft Edge Chromium gets more benefits from what Microsoft has provided.

This Microsoft contribution will certainly continue to grow over time and as Microsoft Edge Chromium goes on, considering that currently Microsoft is focusing their browser on the new Edge which is now supported and available on a multi-platform basis.

The numbers that Eric Lawrence announced are certainly quite a lot, but certainly not comparable to what Google provides, considering they have been diving in this Chromium Project for a long time.
