Microsoft Releases First Builds of New Edge Web Browser Based on Chromium

Posted by · 6856 views · Translate

Microsoft has released the first Canary and Developer builds of its Edge web browser based on the Chromium open source project. Currently the builds are only available for Windows 10; however, Microsoft says the move to Chromium will enable the launch of an Edge web browser for macOS.

-----
In these first builds we are very much focused on the fundamentals and have not yet included a wide range of feature and language support that will come later. You’ll start to see differences from the current Microsoft Edge including subtle design finishes, support for a broader selection of extensions and the ability to manage your sign-in profile. We look forward to people starting to kick the tires and will be refining the feature set over time based on the feedback we receive.

Along with what’s visible in the browser itself, we’ve also begun to make contributions back to the Chromium open source project. These include areas like accessibility, touch, ARM64 and others. We’re working directly with the teams at Google and the broader Chromium community on this work and appreciate the collaborative and open discussions. We look forward to continued engagement with the community to progress Chromium in these areas and others.
