On January 15, 2020, just over a year after Microsoft revealed its plans to switch to Chromium, the new Microsoft Edge Chromium browser was launched across both Windows and macOS. Microsoft is gradually bringing the new Edge to groups of Windows 10 users through Windows Update before it’s fully rolled out to everyone in the summertime. While Microsoft is initially targeting Edge at enterprise users of Windows and macOS, consumers will be able to manually download and install it, too.
The software maker says, “With brand new features like Collections, and the most comprehensive set of built-in learning and accessibility tools on the web, the new Microsoft Edge was designed to help you get things done.” Check out exciting new features.
If you’d prefer not to install Microsoft Edge manually, you can wait for it to be installed in a future update to Windows 10, following the measured roll-out approach over the next several months.
Microsoft has made resources available to enterprise administrators and IT professionals—Topics like deploying, managing, and configuring the new Microsoft Edge in your organization are available at the new enterprise page.
