Microsoft’s New Chromium-powered Edge Browser, First Looks

This could be your new default browser on Windows.

Recently Microsoft has introduced its new Chromium-based Edge browser. The newest browser version is still under testing at Microsoft internally. There're some leaked screenshots pointing out that the new Edge brings a familiar look as we have seen on Chrome browser. Besides, Edge features Microsoft's own touches and animations to make it look like a Windows product.

At the first time when users install the new version of Edge, they are prompted to import their own data from the default browser. The setup interface will ask users to select a default tab style depending on their own. Then it's ready for use!

Microsoft tries to bring some little touches into the Edge. Microsoft also gives the browser's extension support. Noted by the company, users can easily install Chrome extensions from Google's online store by slipping a switch in the browser setting tab. The sync support for extensions are offered in the setup process, but it seems not to be available straight away. As per some reports, users just can sync favorites now. Other data such as your own setting customization, extensions, history, passwords as well as autofill forms won't be available for sync until the upcoming months.

Users have some bad opinions about the previous Edge version, what is likely said to be slow, clunky and even brings bad experiences to customers due to its improper works. But now, Microsoft provides us an entirely different browser, thanks to platform derived from Chromium.

The company does not reveal the day that the new Chromium-based Edge would come out. We’ll keep you updated on exactly when the latest Edge has a beta testing schedule. We're all expecting it to arrive soon!
