Comparing The Microsoft(NASDAQ:MSFT) Edge browser 4 Mac vs. Apple’s Safari, Google’s Chrome, & Mozilla’s FirefoxAppleInsider #Microsoft_EdgeMay 17, 2019
You can now download and run the web browser Microsoft Edge on your Mac, albeit in a developer test version that hasn’t even been granted an official beta test.
