Last month, Microsoft announced the trial period of the new version of Microsoft Edge for Windows 10 based on Chromium.
Users who want to try Edge can download one of three different versions from the respective three different channels. Canary, which receives daily updates, Dev, which receives weekly updates, and Beta, which is updated every six weeks.
Of course the Canary is the first line of fire and contains all the first new Edge updates. It is of course the most unstable, since the Edge is still in beta, although to us the Canary looks very stable.
And all this applies to those who run Windows 10. To date at least, because the Microsoft Edge Canary channel now hosts the version for macOS. You can install the trial version for Mac from the Microsoft Edge Insider website.
Microsoft Edge for macOS will offer exactly the same things as the Windows version, with a different look and feel to match the look of your Mac.
In this initial version, Microsoft has made several changes to the user interface to align with the Microsoft design language, while at the same time making it feel natural in macOS.
Examples of this include a number of modifications to suit macOS, such as fonts, menus, keyboard shortcuts, title box, and more. The look and feel of the browser will evolve in future releases as Microsoft continues to experiment, and listen to customer feedback.
In addition, Microsoft is designing Edge features that will be exclusive to macOS, taking advantage of specific hardware features available on the Mac. For example, providing useful and contextual actions through the touch bar, such as site shortcuts, switching tabs and video controls, and activating familiar gesture navigation.
Today, Microsoft officially launches the Mac Edge of Microsoft Edge Insider on the Canary Channel, where Mac users can download and try it out. Must be running macOS 10.12 and above. The Dev channel will be released very soon.
