Microsoft is making available promised test builds of its Chromium-based Edge browser for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 today, June 19. These are Canary channel builds, meaning they will be updated daily.

Microsoft plans to add Dev channel builds for all these platforms “soon,” according to today’s blog post. Microsoft already offers Canary and Dev channel builds for Chromium-based Edge on Windows 10 and the Mac.

Microsoft has not committed definitively to bringing Chromium-based Edge to Linux, but has hinted that this will likely happen at some point.

As Microsoft notes in its blog post, the first Canary builds have some known issues, including lack of dark-mode support and no support for Azure Active Directory sign-in, which Microsoft is hoping to resolve “soon.”

Chromium-based Edge for Windows 7 leaked a few months ago. I’ve been running it on my Windows 7 PC since then and it has worked well. (Calm down, people, I also have Windows 10 PCs and am running Chromium-based Edge, or Chredge, as I like to call it, there as well.)

In December 2018, Microsoft revealed plans to create a new version of Edge by using Chromium combined with some components currently in Edge, all in the name of providing greater browsing compatibility across the web. At that time, officials said Microsoft planned to make the new Edge browser available on Windows 7, 8.1, 10 and MacOS.. While Edge will continue to ship with Windows 10, Microsoft finally will be updating it independently of the operating systems on which it runs, meaning it will be updated and patched more frequently than the non-Chromium-based MSHTML version of Edge is currently.

Microsoft is bringing Edge to older versions of Windows and the Mac in the hopes of simplifying testing for developers who need to make sure their apps and sites work across all different operating systems and Windows variants.

If you’re wondering how Chromium-based Edge will differ from Google’s Chrome browser, here’s a list of Google services that Microsoft has replaced or turned off in developing the product.

The Installer doesn't work for me.
An extracted portable Beta version from win10 did work though.
win 8.1 btw. so if you also have this, just install it normally on windows 10 (any release channel) and copy all the files from your /programfiles/microsoft/edge (depends on version)/ to a zip and put that on your windows 7 or 8 pc. earlier builds may not work correctly on windows 7 and maybe 8.

Never really cared for browsers Microsoft installs as default, ie Internet Explorer and now Edge. Lol. I only use them to download FF and Chrome on a new install.
Though this new chromium based version of Edge they are rolling out... sounds a little interesting. May give it a test when it's a little more stable. :p
