Microsoft is finally rolling out the first public preview of the new version of Microsoft Edge based on the Chromium engine.

Alongside the first preview, the company is also launching a new page that allows you to download daily (Canary Channel) or weekly (Dev Channel) builds of the browser like it’s possible with Google Chrome. Then as the browser becomes more stable, Microsoft will also release a beta version of the browser, which would be scheduled to release every six weeks. 

While this flight is available only for Windows 10, support for other platforms, like Windows 7, Windows 8.1, macOS, and other channels will come at a later time.
