Microsoft released the Windows 10 version of the Edge browser based on the Chromium kernel last month (preview version), which today's macOS users can experience for themselves. The Microsoft Edge browser macOS version has been officially announced for download, providing the same new browsing experience as Edge on Windows 10, giving users the feeling of being "home away from home" on the Mac.In the Edge preview of macOS, the fonts, menus, keyboard shortcuts and other elements that Mac users use are introduced. There are also virtual shortcut keys and page breaks of the Touch Bar. The gestures of the Mac trackpad can also be used. Compatible. Microsoft revealed that they will continue to improve the Edge, and welcome comments.
This includes macOS design rules that match fonts, menus, keyboard shortcuts, title case, and other areas. Provide useful contextual operations through the Touch Bar, such as website shortcuts, tab switching and video controls, and familiar navigation using trackpad gestures. Etc. As Microsoft continues to experiment, iterate and listen to customer feedback, the appearance of the Edge browser will continue to evolve in future releases, and will continue to take advantage of the specific hardware features available on the Mac to design a unique user experience for macOS.
Mac users can now get a new Microsoft Edge preview for macOS through Microsoft Edge Insider Channels, supporting macOS 10.12 and higher. It should be noted that Canary is updated daily and Dev is updated weekly. Microsoft does not forget to remind everyone that the Windows 7 and 8 versions are on the road.
Like the Windows Preview release, the Edge macOS release includes support for installable, standards-based Progressive Web Apps that you can check and debug using browser developer tools. Microsoft is working hard to make the PWA experience the same as your native app, so after installation they will appear in the Dock, App Switcher and Spotlight just like native apps.
The Edge macOS version is also based on Chromium, so support for webpage agreements will be better in the future, while improving the experience. But what Microsoft wants most is that it is convenient for developers to bring Edge to both development and testing.
