Microsoft has announced the availability of its new Edge Chromium browser. The browser, which is touted to be faster than the current Edge browser on Windows 10 is available for download for Windows (i.e. 7, 8.1, and 10) as well as macOS.
This piece will show you how you can download the Edge Chromium browser even though Microsoft hasn’t officially rolled it out for the general public despite it being the first stable version.
How to download Edge Chromium browser
- Go to the Edge browser’s webpage for the installer.
- Install it on the machine you want the Edge Chromium browser on.
- After the installation, launch the browser and see that the logo has changed to the new one.
- When you open it for the first time, you’ll be asked if you want to import data from Chrome (if you were using Chrome) or the old Edge browser. You can ignore it and start fresh.
For those who want the browser on their mobile devices, Microsoft has made available iOS and Android versions. If you download any of the mobile versions and sign in with the same Microsoft account you used on desktop, it will automatically sync your data (passwords, favourites, etc.).
