Microsoft made Chromium-based Edge browser available yesterday. The software giant launched experimental versions of Canary and Developer providing daily and weekly updates for expected changes to Edge.
Downloads can be made from the new Microsoft Edge Insider site and are designed for developers to contribute and see how Edge is changing.
Microsoft has been focusing on the foundations of browsing, endurance, and support for plugins with this first version based on Chrome browser code.
This new browser works well with full support for existing Chrome plug-ins. Even Microsoft has integrated full browsing synchronization, favorite links, and plugins in Edge.
Microsoft and Google engineers have worked together to improve the Chromium code so that Chrome and Edge work best in Windows.
Microsoft has received more than 150 suggestions for Chromium, paving the way for browser upgrades, as well as those of Edge on Windows 10.
Some of them are improved accessibility, fast browsing, Windows Hello integration, and keyboard support.
Canary and Developer versions are designed only as 64-bit installs for Windows 10 and Microsoft has planned support for Windows 8, Windows 7, and MacOS in the future.
