Everyone knows that Microsoft is working on the Chromium-based Edge browser and the beta preview of the same for Windows is pretty amazing. With the stability and the beautiful design, every beta tester is providing positive feedback. Now, Microsoft has released the test version of the same browser for MacOS users. The Chromium-based browser will now run on the MacOS based devices like the Macbook and iMac. Microsoft Edge browser’s Canary build comes with all of the features from the Windows-based build and also subtle customizations that make it smoother to use on MacOS environment.
Microsoft developers have modified the Edge browser to suit the MacOS environment. With fonts that are suitable for mac, menu options and also the Keyboard shortcuts are dedicated to the MacOS users. So, the users will feel it like proprietary MacOS software, while using the Edge Browser based on Chromium open-source project. With the customizations for MacOS like Touchbar shortcuts, trackpad gestures and every other feature that is not present on the Windows-based computers, Microsoft has added support for every feature. Also, the company says that the refinements will be introduced with each update in the future.
As the browser is based on Chromium Open-source project, it comes with design elements adopted from Chrome browser. Also, the browser does support all of the plugins and apps from the Chrome Web Store, making it one of the best alternatives for the Chrome Browser itself. Thankfully, Chromium-based Edge complies with all of the modern web standards, unlike the Edge browser that comes in Windows 10. As the web developers ignoring the standard Edge browser due to lack of the support for modern web standards, Microsoft hopes they will start using the Edge once it is officially launched with Chromium base. MacOS users can download the installer from the official Microsoft Edge website.
