Microsoft’s Chromium-based Edge browser is now available
January 16, 2020

It’s also available for macOS users.

Microsoft has officially rolled out its new Edge browser based on Google’s Chromium. The browser is available for Windows 10/8.1/8/7, iOS, Android and even macOS. Since it now uses the same engine that runs on Google Chrome, Microsoft’s Edge browser is also compatible with various Chrome extensions.

Edge was the browser that replaced Internet Explorer and while it offered various new features and improvements, barely anyone used it. That prompted Microsoft to utilize Chromium’s web engine, which is being adopted by nearly every website online. This means that any website designed for Chrome automatically works for Edge.

Since the average PC user would only use the default browser on their Windows machine, that means that you are getting a better browser. The inclusion of macOS support is also a welcome addition, where some organizations require Edge for most web-based tasks.
