Microsoft releases its Google Chrome-ized Edge browser for testing

Microsoft’s Chromium Edge browser is here Why you should try

"The Beta channel reflects a significantly more stable release and will be a good target for Enterprises and IT Pros to start piloting the next version of Microsoft Edge", Microsoft explained in a second announcement.

"Keep in mind, these early builds can be run on any 64-bit version of Windows 10 without impacting your current browsing experience - and the current Microsoft Edge browser will continue to be included in Windows 10 Insider Preview builds", the company said. "The Dev channel is still relatively fresh - it's the best build of the week from the Canary channel".

Microsoft wants users to try out the first builds for the new Edge, and it is offering versions that are updated daily or weekly. If you like to live dangerously, you can use the canary stream of builds but know that it's inevitable that this channel will eventually have a bad release that breaks some online capabilities.

Naturally, Google's engineers worked together with Microsoft's to make this happen, and in posts on Twitter, the Microsoft Edge developers took a moment to thank to everyone working for the search giant for all their support.

What this means is that you can download a preview build of Edge that is a window to the future where Microsoft hand off responsibility for how websites are rendered, to the open sourced project Chromium.

Microsoft also plans Chromium improvements in for touch-screen interfaces, video chat, graphics acceleration and accessibility - an important technology for people with vision or other disabilities. At the time, Windows VP Joe Belifore pointed out that the mobile versions of Edge used open-source roots, so it made sense to do the same on the desktop.

Trump removes secret service director in agency’s ‘near-systematic purge’
Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex" Alles is leaving his job, according to the White House. Citizienship and Immigration Services Director Francis Cissna "are expected to be gone soon".

Some of the changes are more obvious to users. So far it looks like a great build that hasn't crashed, is actually really fast and supports my favourite feature of a browser, the ability to drag and drop tabs between windows. The company says that macOS builds are coming soon. However, I don't quite see how Microsoft will convince users to return to its browser.

The developer version of the new Edge browser looks and functions similarly to Google's Chrome browser, although Microsoft is still working to add a number of unique features to the platform.

For now, the Chromium-based Edge is nearly all Google's code.
