Microsoft Releases its Chromium Edge Browser for Downloading and Testing

The new portal focuses on browsing fundamentals. Which is to say, it places emphasis on the basics, including reliability, speed, and ease-of-use.

Early tests reveal a well-oiled machine, working to deliver on key metrics. The new Microsoft Chromium Edge browser supports Chrome extensions. And, the company is already at work to bring favorites, browsing history, and extensions to the experience.

Joe Belfiore, corporate vice president at Microsoft, tells The Verge the following about the new Chromium-powered Edge browser:

“We’re working directly with the teams at Google and the broader Chromium community on this work and appreciate the collaborative and open discussions. These contributions represent work-in-progress and are not yet fully represented in the browser you can install today, so stay tuned.”

Microsoft is publicly calling for feedback as it tweaks the product. The release only runs on English 64-bit installations of Windows 10. Although, Microsoft states it’s planning to bring forth support for Windows 7 and 8, along with macOS.
