If you are a frequent user of Microsoft Edge on Windows and have a Mac, I am delighted to know that Microsoft has recently announced the intention to bring Edge to MacOS. This MacOS version of Microsoft Edge is based on Chromium and can be officially downloaded shortly.
In the meantime, if you want to test the developer preview of Microsoft Edge because it can be downloaded from Microsoft server, you can download and install it using the guide below.
Microsoft has released two builds for the macOS version of Edge (Canary Build and Developer Build). Canary builds are updated daily to address issues that other users are experiencing, and developer builds are updated weekly.
Updates to both builds are provided through the browser itself (similar to Chrome) and are interrupted by updates. Both versions of the build turned out to be fairly stable in the testing process, but they still need to be previewed (developer apps) and not yet officially fully released by Microsoft. You may experience problems while using your browser. We also do not recommend using it as your default browser.
It is very easy to install a build.
1. Go to Microsoft's website and select the Microsoft Edge Preview build you want to download. The beta version is not yet available, so you can select the Dev and Canary versions.
2. When the download is complete, install it in the "Applications" folder (or whatever other location you prefer) just like the default application.
3. Once the application is successfully installed, you can open the application from the Applications folder.
4. If you have Chrome installed on your Mac, Edge will automatically import all your data (bookmarks, browsing history, saved passwords, etc.) from Chrome and start using it.
Microsoft is using its design UI to make its applications look like a native Mac. Application with Mac keyboard shortcuts added. The MacOS application also features a dark mode that supports Apple 's native Dark Mode. Likewise, privacy features and other add-ons are expected to be added soon as they will be available in future editions (Windows and Mac).
(or tentative) The release date is still there, but the developer build is expected to be not too far away from the public.
