Microsoft shows off Chromium-powered Edge on macOS

When Microsoft announced that it's rebuilding its Edge browser from Chromium back in December, it also said that it's coming for older versions of Windows, as well as macOS. But while previews have been available on Windows 10 for about a month now, there's been no word about when it's coming to other platforms.

Today at its Build developer conference though, Microsoft finally showed off its new Edge browser running on macOS. Obviously, it really doesn't have any exclusive features that you won't find on Windows, but it's exciting to finally see it live.

Unfortunately, that does not mean that it's available for download, but it does mean that the team is pretty close. Once it is available, it will show up in the Canary channel - which offers daily builds - and the Dev channel - which offers weekly builds.

As for support for older versions of Windows, there's no word on that right now. It's coming eventually, and many Edge Insiders have even reported that they've had no problem getting builds to work on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.
