Chromium-based Edge browser now available for Windows 7

With this update, Microsoft Edge Dev reaches build number on Windows 10 and macOS.

Starting off as a Windows 10 browser and then spreading to macOS, there is now talk of Linux being in Microsoft's sights.

Microsoft is making available promised test builds of its Chromium-based Edge browser for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 today, June 19. A version for Linux distributions has not been released yet.

The preview builds for Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 are available through the Microsoft Edge Canary channel and can be downloaded from the Microsoft Edge Insider website.

Microsoft is taking some extra steps in releasing its Windows 10 May 2019 Update that including leveraging its Machine Learning algorithms to help proliferate the release. Have you tried Microsoft Edge on your Windows 7/8/8.1 devices - if any - already? The app will download and install just fine, but when you actually open it, you won't actually get the terminal.

By all accounts Chromium-based Edge for these earlier versions of Windows works pretty much identically to the Windows 10 incarnation, which is good news.

While Microsoft keeps improving Edge for both Windows 10 and macOS, there are no specifics as to when the company could promote the browser to the beta and stable channels.

Microsoft has yet to reveal a release date for the final version of the new Microsoft Edge Chromium web browser.

Microsoft observes: "You will find the experience and feature set on previous versions of Windows to be largely the same as on Windows 10, including forthcoming support for Internet Explorer mode for our enterprise customers".
