Microsoft Edge Browser Chromium: How to Try the Beta on Your Mac or PC

Microsoft has released the first beta version of its Chrome Edge browser.

The company recently stopped producing its own browser engines in favor of Google's chrome. If you can't beat them, join them, right? And now in beta of its new Chromium-based, Edge browser is available for all supported versions of Windows and macOS, with Microsoft describing it as a very "stable" preview that has already taken many quality assurance cycles.

The company has been passing the software developers test for several months. To date, there are over one million downloads from preview builds, resulting in over 140 reports. In other words, this version of the browser will be ready for everyday use, and Microsoft is even offering $000 to security researchers who find vulnerabilities.

If you're ready to test the beta on your Mac or PC, here's how.
