So far I am liking what I see with Chromium based Edge. They released a version for MacOS yesterday. I installed it this morning on Mojave and have been using it all day. I like the clean look. What blows me away is the speed of it. It is faster than Firefox and Safari. Just a tad slower then Chrome.

Microsoft did a good job making the UI look and act like all other MacOS apps. If only there was an Adblocker available to make it the perfect browser.

Testing to see user agent with Chrome to compare difference.

I see the user agent for Edge is showing as Chrome although it seems to be a different build.

Did the just release it for MacOS or is there one for the Windozes as well or is it just a beta thing?

I have now made Edge my default browser. In the last upgrade they enabled extensions on the Mac version. I now have all the extensions I had installed on Firefox installed on Edge.

I really think Microsoft has a winner here.
