  • Microsoft's New Chromium-Based Edge, Now Available to Download - Petri

Today, Microsoft Chromium Edge is now formally accessible for download for Windows 10 and you needn't bother with an Insider machine to run the program. I haven't encountered many issues with the Developer build, though we'll keep an eye out for bugs as we keep using it.

In the first article in this series, Living on the (New) Edge: Getting Started, I explained how the new Edge configures sync automatically through your Microsoft account (MSA) if you sign-in to Windows 10 with that account.

KitGuru Says: Google Chrome and Firefox continue to dominate the browser landscape but perhaps Microsoft's switch to Chromium will give Edge a boost.

The organization has essentially either evacuated or supplanted more than 50 Google administrations that join Chromium, including Google Now, Google Pay, Drive API, Google Maps Time zone, Google Cloud Storage, Google DNS, Google Cloud Messaging, and different administrations intended for Chrome OS.

Excited to Test the New Microsoft Edge? Extensions has always been the week point of Edge and this new Chromium base solves that problem.

Microsoft has launched its Canary and Dev build, and they are out for testing so that they can gather some feedback to work more on the Beta version which is yet to be released.

Late a year ago, Microsoft announced their plans to build the next generation Edge browser based on Chromium.

As noted by The Verge, the new version of Edge has support for extensions, meaning your favourite add-ons for Google Chrome will work with it. The good news is that Microsoft's new Edge looks very good, and it is very responsive, even if the product is not finished yet. Now Microsoft is ready to show off the fruits of its labor: Edge Insider builds are ready to download to a Windows 10 PC near you.

We have heard a lot of details about the Chromium-based Edge, and an early preview version of the browser has been already leaked. So are you excited to test out the new Microsoft Edge?

Microsoft is also working on ARM support for Chromium, alongside PDF enhancements, battery life improvements, smooth scrolling, editing, layout, dev tools, and web authentication.

Edge is still far from being a browser that can be used as a daily driver. You can add other search engines if you want.

Whilst there's some doubt over the eternal verities of Edge becoming one more Chromium browser, there's little doubt that Microsoft's might is going to have a positive effect on the open-source project.
