When Microsoft announced that they will kill the original Edge Browser and switch to a new Chromium (not Chrome) based version, I was excited. Mostly for two reasons:
- Chromium is the engine used within Electron. One engine means more resources for test and development, hopefully.
- Chromium can be used on several platforms, including the Mac.
Shortly after the announcement I found an article that announced exactly that: “Coming soon for macOS“.
And here we are: Microsoft Edge on macOS
At the Microsoft build conference the initial (internal?) releases start to show-up on some Mac’s. and shortly after that, the first sites announced that there will be a public build soon.
Another reason why I like to have Edge on my Mac: Cross platform Bookmark sync!
Yes, Google can provide that with Chrome since ages! But I don’t like Chrome that much. Whenever I need an additional browser I use Chromium or Brave.
And on my Windows boxes, Edge is a first-class citizen! And a bookmark sync between my Mac and the Windows boxes will be a big relief.
