Microsoft started its annual Build developer conference with a teaser of its new Edge web browser for macOS.
Although the browser is currently being tested, Microsoft announced that its official release will be available “very soon”.
By launching the new Edge browser on macOS, Mac users will be able to access both the Canary and Dev builds of Edge just like the Windows users do.
A blog post regarding the latest Edge features claims that the browser is being rebuilt with the same open source Chromium rendering engine as used by Google Chrome.
Additionally, Microsoft provides a short preview of the macOS browser, which also reminds quite a lot of Chrome.
In fact, Microsoft released the first preview of its Edge browser for Windows a month ago, however, the browser remained listed as “coming soon” for macOS.
Nevertheless, considering the latest Microsoft news, the researchers suggest that the Edge browser for Mac will be available anytime soon.
Edge is going to be Microsoft’s first web browser for macOS since Safari replaced Internet Explorer 16 years ago.
Today, according to a post on reddit, users can download the canary version of Microsoft’s Edge browser now.
