Microsoft previews upcoming Microsoft Edge for Mac release!

Alongside other announcements at Build 2019, Microsoft have announced finally Microsoft Edge’s new Chromium based upgrade, which with it brings a slew of new features, one of the big ones being availability for the first time on macOS.

This isn’t the first time you’ve been able to use a Microsoft browser on the Mac, in fact, those old schoolers out there will remember, back in the days of OS 9, all the way till Mac OS X Panther, Internet Explorer was the default browser on the Mac, until Apple produced Safari.

The newer Microsoft Edge has an improved engine, running off Chromium, meaning it can run Extensions (some of which not built initially for Edge), has a ton of privacy features as well as, when needed, Internet Explorer mode for those compatibility sites that still live in the past.

The newer Edge on Windows, is still in Canary and Beta stages, whereas on the Mac we’re still awaiting a build to try out, but sources are saying we should expect to see that fairly soon.
