Microsoft’s Chromium-Based Edge Browser Is Now Available To Download For macOS

The new Edge can import a lot of data from Chrome thanks to the Chromium codebase

The new Edge web browser is based on Chromium, the same core that Google Chrome, Vivaldi, Opera, and numerous others rely on.

After the lackluster web browsers that Microsoft has recently been responsible for (Internet Explorer and Edge), the company has been hard at work reinventing the latter of the two from the ground up.

The new version of the Microsoft Edge for macOS based on the Chromium engine is available to download now.

This first stable build is Microsoft Edge 79 (because the company is using Chromium versioning).

Microsoft's response is to hook Edge to Chrome's coattails. Microsoft will continue to support the new Edge for Windows 7 for the time being.

Gallant Knight fired as DeBoer named NHL Vegas coach

The tiny piece of text used to help mask some of Microsoft's browser deficiencies by tricking a website upon initial connection is coming to an end as early as March 2020.

Coupled with a report from ZDNet and an enlightening Twitter thread from a member of the Chrome security team, we get some insight into Google's bottom line intent.

If you're a consumer, you won't be able to block the update from happening. Enterprise and education users will not be automatically upgraded either. Incidentally, there are also mobile-specific versions of Edge designed for iOS and Android if you want to see how it compares to your browser of choice on your daily driver.

Microsoft will roll out the new Edge over the course of months to the Windows population that runs Windows 10 on devices. Collections are built into the new Edge, as well as a comprehensive set of learning and accessibility tools. The Chromium foundation, however, gives Edge access both to Microsoft's list of curated plugins as well as the vast array of extensions available via Google's Chrome Web Store, which offers far more flexibility than the old Edge ever did.
