The default Internet browser titled Edge will gradually be replaced by a new version based on the Chromium engine, the one used by Chrome for example. Download the beta for free without further delay.
Download MS Edge beta
To do this, click on the link below to go directly to the official download page of the Microsoft site.

Launch the installer’s executable, wait a few moments for the latter download and automatically installs MS Edge.
Once the installation is complete, the new browser starts to give way to a guided tour.

You can edit this from Other import options.
Or do Continue without importing.
You can then choose between 3 different designs (changeable later):
The last step allows you to synchronise all this in the cloud via a Microsoft account.
You are now using the latest version of
Chrome Ms Edge, the only browser (with Safari since the last update of MacOS Catalina) to date capable of running Netflix in 4K, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. What do you think?
