The latest Microsoft Edge is based on the open-source Chromium Engine, making it super compatible with browser extensions formerly only available for Google Chrome.

Millions of people have been testing and helping Microsoft in the development of the new Edge browser. You too can be a tester, by visiting the Microsoft Edge Insider Channels and choosing a version to try.

Of course, Edge comes with many improvements and advantages, and more features are coming soon.

The last several months have been nothing short of inspiring for all of us working to deliver great new capabilities for Microsoft Edge including AAD support, Internet Explorer mode, 4K streaming, Dolby audio, inking in PDF, Microsoft Search in Bing integration, support for Chrome-based extensions, and more.
