Last month, we announced the first preview construction of the next
version of Microsoft Edge for Windows 10. Today we are happy
announce the availability of the Microsoft Edge Canary channel for
Mac os. You can now install preview build from Microsoft Edge
Insider site for MacOS or Windows 10 PC, and more
Windows version support is coming soon.
I'm trying to think how long it has been since I had a Microsoft browser running on my Mac. Apple released Safari in 2003, but I still ran classic MacOS on the Power Mac 9600 to 2004 or 2005, I think. So maybe 15 years?
Building a "Mac-like" user experience for Microsoft Edge
Microsoft Edge for macOS will offer the same new browsing experience
experience that we preview on Windows, with user experience
optimizations to make it feel at home on a Mac. We tailor
The overall look to match what MacOS users expect
apps on this platform.
I'm glad they put quotes around "Mac-like" because this is not very Mac-like. It looks and feels like Google Chrome, which makes sense because it's a Chromium fork. But even Chrome uses Mac's default contextual menus (what you see when you right-click) ̵
It all feels very fast.
