"On Monday, Microsoft announced it officially released a trial version of Microsoft Edge for Mac. It is a remarkably surprisingly solid app even in this pre-launch release," writes William Gallagher for AppleInsider. "Although we already know that it lacks a few key features, you can still get a sense of whether Microsoft Edge is worth replacing Safari as the main reader. "
" The company did not set out to create a Mac browser, set it out to convert its existing PC Edge to use the Google Chromium system. That makes it a solid base that also gives the Mac version, writes Gallagher. "And that's what makes the Mac version of Microsoft Edge look very much like the Mac version of Chrome. If you were thinking of moving from Safari and would not risk a pre-beta developer version of Microsoft Edge, you can download Chrome, and you'll get pretty much the same feeling. "
" Those of us who happen to prefer Safari to, for example, Chrome, already know that we're not really likely to make the move to Edge, either, "writes Gallagher . "It's good that we have the opportunity, even though we need to be aware that it is practically a birth accident, that means we're just getting a Mac version of Edge because it's a Mac version of the Google Chrome system."
