Back in December 2018, Microsoft announced its intention to develop a new version of Edge browser based on the Chromium open source project. Microsoft’s aim was to create better web compatibility for our customers, and less fragmentation of the web for web developers. After testing the new Edge browser for more than an year, Microsoft today announced the general availability of Microsoft Edge browser for Windows and macOS. You can download the “Stable” channel of Microsoft Edge browser for Windows in more than 90 languages from Microsoft here. Apple macOS users can download it here.
If you don’t want to install Microsoft Edge manually, you can also wait for it to be installed automatically through future update to Windows 10. Microsoft will roll out this stable version of new Edge to all Windows 10 users over the next several months. And the migration process begins in the coming weeks, starting with a subset of Insiders in the Release Preview ring.
Highlights of the new Edge browser:
Microsoft Edge is now available on all your devices, and automatically syncs your passwords, favorites, and settings.
