Microsoft’s Chromium Edge browser is here

Microsoft is launching its new Chromium-based Edge browser today. It comes with built-in tracking protection, a new Collections feature to grab images and content from the web, and an Internet Explorer mode for businesses. Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 and Mac users can download and install the update manually, and automatic updates will start rolling out for Windows users next week. IT admins can rest easy though, as Microsoft isn’t automatically upgrading commercial customers through Windows Update.

If you’re interested in using Edge across your desktop and mobile devices, Microsoft is also making it available on both Android and iOS. Note that if you download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and then sign in with the same Microsoft Account you use on Windows or macOS, it will sync your favorites, passwords, and more.

Full browsing history and open tab sync between desktop and mobile aren’t available yet, but Microsoft is planning to add them in the coming months. Microsoft is also adding extension sync across the desktop versions of Edge soon, and it will enable Collections to sync, too.
