Back in December, however, Microsoft made the surprise announcement that it was gutting Edge and rebuilding it around Google's open source Chromium platform, which is what the Chrome browser is based on.

Forward-looking: The first releases will be from the Canary channel which is updated nearly every day. The Dev Channel version is available for Windows 10 already, and first Beta Channel versions are expected soon.

As with all such releases, the first Canary builds have some known issues, including lack of dark-mode support and Azure Active Directory sign-in.

By all accounts Chromium-based Edge for these earlier versions of Windows works pretty much identically to the Windows 10 incarnation, which is good news.

Edge is Microsoft's home grown browser for Windows 10, just as Internet Explorer was for previous versions of Windows. The Canary Channel is notable for getting daily software updates, with potentially more software flaws, as well.

Chromium-based Edge for Windows 7 leaked a few months ago. The new Edge browser uses the same Chromium core that Google Chrome and other browsers such as Vivaldi, Opera, or courageous use.

On the other hand, Microsoft also provided up fixes for Windows 10 users affected by a bug that did not offer them the option of selecting key privacy settings throughout the setup. With the transition to new popular web engine Chromium browser lost several functions, such as the postponement of the tabs and the draw notes on top of pages. This itself is strong enough incentive to switch to the new Chromium-based Edge browser because it will get better quicker than the current non-Chromium-based MSHTML version of Edge.

"Microsoft Edge will have the same always up-to-date platform and the same developer tools on all supported versions of Windows". Microsoft has regularly reminded users of the operating system that support for Windows 7 will end on January 14, 2020.
