It’s a Google browser made by Microsoft.

A public beta of Microsoft Edge has just made its way online for everyone to test out. This reinvention of the Edge browser was announced by Microsoft a few months ago. The new Edge browser now utilizes Chromium from Google, which is used by Chrome, currently one of the most popular internet browsers available.

Of course, this is still a Microsoft-made browser, meaning that you can still expect it to be optimized for Windows 10 machines from the design to the function. Still, Microsoft’s shift to using Chromium simply means its siding to whatever standard is more popular without having to give up its own efforts.

If you want to check out the new Microsoft Edge, you can head on to this link to download the beta. Despite still being in beta, the new Microsoft Edge browser still works wonderfully well – you can even try and load some of the Google Chrome extensions that you have.

The ultimate aim is to make the Edge browser perform as fast and efficient as Google Chrome on a Windows 10 machine. The only question is if Chrome users will be comfortable enough to shift and make Edge their primary browser.
