After months of trial, Microsoft's Chromium-Based Edge browser is available to try MacOS hardware.
Just last month, Microsoft announced the first version of the next version of Microsoft Edge for Windows 10. Formerly Microsoft took the wraps of its Microsoft Edge Canary channel for macOS.
"Microsoft Edge for macOS will offer the same new browser experience we preview on Windows, with user experience optimizations to make it feel at home on a Mac, Microsoft claims." We tailor the overall look to match what MacOS users expect from apps on this platform. "
Build around a chrome foundation, Microsoft says users can expect a consistent rendition experience across Windows and MacOS versions of Microsoft Edge.
"We are committed to building a world-class browser with Microsoft Edge through differentiated user experience features and connected services. With this introductory release, we've made several changes to the user interface to adapt to Microsoft's design language while still feeling natural to macOS. "
Microsoft said it would also exploit specific hardware features of some Macbook models, including Touchbar.
" We design MacOS exclusive user experiences by leveraging specific hardware features available on Mac. For example, you can provide useful and contextual touch line actions, such as web pages, shortcuts, flipping controls, and video controls, as well as activation of well-known trackpad navigation, "it said.
