Microsoft's Chromium-powered Edge browser is now officially available to download

Google Chrome on a Windows phone Microsoft's New Chromium-Based Edge, Now Available to Download - Petri

One of the main benefits of moving to Chromium is that the new Edge will support third-party extensions.

If you're feeling fearless, and would prefer your data heading Microsoft's way rather than Google's, then this first publicly released preview build is a solid start.

You can download the software for Windows 10 computers from Microsoft's Edge Insider site. With its release, Microsoft is offering both a developer build based on Chromium 74 and a Canary build based on Chromium 75.

Back in February, Microsoft revealed that anyone would be able to test the company's upcoming Chromium-based Edge web browser without the need to be a Windows Insider.

What this means to you: There's no reason to replace Google Chrome or any other browser with this new version quite yet. "You'll start to see differences from the current Microsoft Edge including subtle design finishes, support for a broader selection of extensions and the ability to manage your sign-in profile".

"You might have heard that some changes are coming for Microsoft Edge", the company said today in an email, "and today we're excited to announce that the first preview builds of the next version of Microsoft Edge based on Chromium are now ready for download on Windows 10 PCs". "We look forward to people starting to kick the tires and will be refining the feature set over time based on the feedback we receive". Via the Edge browser, you can visit Google's Chrome Web Store and immediately begin installing them.

On the website you will see the list of supported extensions and you can click on any of those to install.

Once in, and things look very similar to Google's browser, if slightly more squared off (although not to the unapologetically right-angled extent of the soon-to-be-shoved-off-a-cliff original Edge.) Naturally, rather than being signed in with a Google account, it's the Microsoft account that takes centre stage.

From the Extensions screen, toggle on the setting that is labeled "Allow extensions from other stores." as shown below. Just be sure to examine the reviews for an extension before you install them as these extensions are not vetted by Microsoft.

Microsoft found itself in a battle against Google, whose almost entire bottom line is based on what happens in a web browser, with its own internally developed engine.

In the address bar type edge://flags and press enter. Integration with some Microsoft services, such as Windows Defender and Bing, is already present, though for the most part, it seems you should expect a browser that functions a lot like Chrome given its basis in Chromium.
