1 min read

When Microsoft announced a new version of the Edge browser based on the Chromium kernel, it promised to introduce the Edge browser to the macOS platform and support the Windows 7 and Windows 8. A preview version for Windows 10 has already been released, but it is only supported on Windows 10 systems. Recently, Microsoft has finally provided a long-awaited preview version of Chromium Microsoft Edge for Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1.

“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.”

“The first Canary builds do have a few known issues, including the lack of dark mode support and no support for AAD sign-in, which we are working to resolve soon. If you need help or support, just press F1 from within Microsoft Edge Canary or Dev to visit our support website.”
