If you haven’t already downloaded Edge on your Mac, here’s the link to do it now. Now Microsoft has made a Canary official release to macOS users. If you’re running macOS 10.12 or above, you can try it today.

If you have never tried Microsoft Edge before, it is a browser came with Windows 10, a better version of Internet Explorer, but it is kind of unfair to give it that association.

Edge sports a clean and simple design, and packs all the features you would expect from a web browser in 2019. And now that it’s being built with Chromium, it’s faster and more reliable than ever.

Edge for macOS delivers the same experience that’s coming to Windows, but with optimizations specifically for the Mac. “We are tailoring the overall look and feel to match what macOS users expect from apps on this platform,” Microsoft says.

Some of those optimizations include matching macOS conventions for fonts, menus, keyboard shortcuts, and more. You will also find that Edge is fully-compatible with the MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar.

You’ll be able to use Touch Bar shortcuts for things like navigation and tab switching, and playback control when watching videos. You will also find handy links to your favorite websites.

Download the preview today

The first Edge preview for Mac is available through what Microsoft calls “Microsoft Edge Insider Channels.” It’s a Canary release, which will be updated every day, and you can download it now.

Canary builds are some of the earliest and most unstable, but they give you a chance to try out changes and improvements almost as soon as they are made. Slightly more stable developer and beta builds for macOS are “coming soon.”
