At long last, and on the exact day promised by Microsoft (January 15), their all-new Edge browser is here. It’s available for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, and macOS, and you can get it right away by grabbing a download at As first announced late 2018, the new Microsoft Edge replaces the current (or soon legacy) Edge browser with an overhaul that utilizes Chromium as the foundation. In simple terms, this means that the new Edge gives you basically the same web browsing experience as if you were using Chrome – thereby ending the painfully unreliable web rendering of past Microsoft web browsers.

For now, it’s available if you manually download and install it yourself. But if you’re willing to wait around, the new Edge will eventually ship with a forthcoming Windows Update for your PC.
