Microsoft is looking forward to creating the new Chromium-based Edge different in terms of its ability to support other platforms. While the first edition of Edge could not be tested on Windows 7 or macOS, this one is going to fit more platforms.

The first preview builds of the new browser for Windows 10 were just joined by builds for macOS.

The macOS version features similar elements of the Windows 10 one but also brings new features forward. The company intends to adjust to Apple’s hardware by including support for Touch Bar, so Mac fans can use it for tab switching and media control.

Microsoft is also taking extra care that the Edge will interact correctly with the Dock, app switcher, and Spotlight.

To enjoy the build, you will need the macOS 10.12 version (or above). This version is going to be first available in the Canary channel. A dev channel will be published afterwards weekly, and finally a beta channel build with updates every six weeks.
