Microsoft is gearing up to release the new Chromium-based version of the Edge browser for macOS on January 15, 2020, with potential users able to try out the release candidate of the browser on their Mac from today.
It's very early days for the promised Collections tool for gathering and managing research, but what's working is promising. The whole browser is feeling faster, too, which may help make it a strong Safari rival.
There are solid features in Microsoft's new Mac browser - and significant ones still to come - but for Edge to be a compelling browser for Apple users, it's got to offer you more than you're getting with Apple's own Safari.
Just a day after teasing the browser, Microsoft has posted live download links for the Dev and Canary builds of Edge for Mac, allowing macOS users to try out the software ahead of a formal public release of the Chromium-ported version.
The World Wide Web Consortium and the FIDO Alliance have certified WebAuthn as an official Web standard, allowing users of compatible browsers — Safari among them — to turn to hardware logins instead of passwords.
Microsoft is continuing to make its apps more useful to iPhone and iPad users, with updates to the OneDrive app adding support for the Files app and iOS 11 features, while reports indicate the company is preparing to expand its Edge browser from iPhone to iPad in the near future.
Microsoft released its Edge mobile web browser for iOS on Thursday following a brief preview period, with the new browser aiming to provide Windows 10 users a 'continuous browsing experience' between their desktop and their iPhone.
