While important to move to WIN10 in coming months, a new EDGE Chromium version ported to WIN7 and WIN8 users as part of preview (beta) programs.  This can help users get used to a much improved EDGE in WIN10 v1903 for WIN7 users being converted later in 2019 as the JAN-2020 EOL target approaches.




Microsoft announced this week that it has released previews of its Chromium-based Microsoft Edge Web browsers for use on Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 systems.    This week’s announcement is notable for bringing the Edge browser to Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 for the very first time. Previously, those older OSes had just supported Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 11 browser, which is a “deprecated” product (not being developed), plus the Firefox and Chrome browsers.
