Microsoft officially launches Chromium-based Edge browser for all platforms

Microsoft Edge browser based on Google's Chrome comes to macOS

What to expect from Microsoft's 'new Edge' browser, rolling out to you soon

That doesn't mean you have to reconfigure everything though as all your favourites, settings, password, contact info and other information will sync if you move across to the new browser. The company hopes that building Edge on top of Google's open-source Chromium browser will start to change that.

For users who would prefer not to install it manually, Microsoft will be rolling out the new Edge browser in future Windows 10 updates during the next several months, this is planned to begin in the coming weeks, starting with Windows Insiders in the Release Preview ring.

Apart from its availability across all Windows and macOS based systems, the new Edge browser will be bundled with the OEM based new PCs and laptop machines. Otherwise, the company said, you'll receive new versions of Edge on about a six-week cadence. Enterprise and education users will not be automatically upgraded either.

With the roll out, new Windows 10 devices should come with the new Edge already pre-installed. That's the beauty of using Chromium, the most widely-used web browsing engine in the world. The latest iteration of Microsoft Edge was introduced earlier today and is compatible with Windows and OS X. Managed devices will not be automatically updated to the new Microsoft Edge.

On network environments with unmanaged devices running Windows 10 Pro or Home, it's still possible to block the automatic delivery of Microsoft Edge using these instructions.

Edge also boasts Dolby Audio and Dolby Vision compatibility. History and extension sync are now MIA, though Microsoft will eventually include them in an update later this year.

However, Microsoft's browser is different from Google's in that it has built-in tracking protections and other features such as Collections that lets you organize images and pages.
