Microsoft has launched its first stable version of Microsoft Edge, which was built using Google’s Chromium code. The company aims to provide users with improved performance, better web compatibility and a centralized platform for developers.

Browsing on Edge using a Mac will be quite similar to the Windows experience, with a few notable additions to make it feel like a native app. Extensions may be added via the Chrome Web Store or through the Addons store. Edge boasts features such as a mode for viewing older webpages, built-in search with Bing, tracking prevention and various customization options. Moreover, the ‘E’ logo has been replaced with a new wave-style logo.
