Chromium Edge for Windows

Back in late 2018, Microsoft announced that it will be replacing EdgeHTML in Microsoft Edge browser with Chromium to contribute to the open source community and deliver more features in a short period of time.

Today, Microsoft Chromium Edge is now officially available for download for Windows 10 and you don’t need an Insider machine to run the browser. At the moment, Microsoft is maintaining two channels for the browser: Dev channel which will be updated weekly and a Canary Channel which will receive updates regularly.

Microsoft Chromium Edge has a new look and it respects the modern interface of Windows 10. The Chromium-based Edge features a clean interface that looks comfortable and familiar.

Just like any other web browser, there’s a large address bar with home page shortcut, a Chrome-like profile icon past that and a menu to access other features.

Similar to old Microsoft Edge, there’s also a news feed on the start screen if you choose Informational or Inspirational homepage layout.

The start page also has frequently visited sites and the list can be edited. The inspirational layout also displays a screen image which is tied to Microsoft’s Bing service.

There’s a redesigned settings page and you can also install the Chrome extensions in Edge. It is worth noting that Microsoft Chromium Edge is still in preview and you may encounter unexpected bugs.
