This morning we published the first builds of our Microsoft Edge browser built for macOS.  You can read our full blog post about it here.  Then download it, if you are running a Mac, and then come back here and tell us what you think.

Next stop: Linux!
Nice! Grabbing it now and yes, a Linux version would be ace too.

I really can't wait to see this all in about six months along. So far between using it on Windows, Android, iPhone, iPad and the leaked MacOS (besides the **bleep**ty sync) the inconsistency in look and feel have been a bit disappointing, even just the difference in iPhone/ iPad even though its a universal bundle. The iPhone feels fine, the iPad feels more like the order Edge, but then there is no real beta channel for iOS. Hoping to see a Test Flight version one day soon.

Cheers.
can I use the macOS Canary build with my Yubikey for website logins?

Cool, awesome man. Is there an estimate on when it will come out for windows 7, windows 8, and windows 8.1?

@Elliot Kirk 

I'm building .Net Core desktop applications with embedded browser control

As Microsoft Edge is now available for macOS,  is it possible to provide a .Net Core library with .Net bindings to underlining engine, for Win/macOS/Linux, so to use it  in my applications.

There is a need for a reliable .Net bindings library.

@Elliot Kirk 20% cpu load on macOS 10.14.5 without any opened pages - MS Edge 76.0.161.0. ;(

Thanks for sharing your feedback on sync. We’ve recently made a fix that we believe will address various feedback on inconsistent sync issues. It’d be great if you can restart the new version of Edge on all your devices and see if your sync issue is resolved. Please let us know if that doesn’t work. We’d love to investigate and help address the issue.
Edge on MacOS does not use native fullscreen. The current implementation is not default behaviour. In Safari and Chrome each tab goes fullscreen in its own macOS space; which means you can continue using other tabs. In Edge going fullscreen in one tab makes the other tabs unusable.

@Elliot KirkWill there be the ability to import and/or access macOS Keychain items? 

@Elliot Kirk First impressions from a regular Safari user.

 

I know Edge for Mac is based on Chromium, but I don't use Google Chrome due to issues with energy usage and privacy, so some of the 'chrome-like' elements of Edge for Mac are unfamiliar to me. Many of the good points I cite below are quite possibly things that Edge gets 'for free' because it's based on Chromium. 

 

The good:

- It feels very fast

- It respects the system-wide dark mode

- Easy to change font sizes, which is important to me from an accessibility standpoint

 

The not so good:

- It feels like a port from another OS; close buttons on the right of the tabs?!

- Non-standard contextual menus feel quite alien

- On first launch it offers to import bookmarks from Chrome, but not the default Mac browser Safari 

 

On a general point I do wonder how much continuous re-skinning is going to be needed over time to keep Edge looking and feeling like a true at-home Mac app. 

 

That said it's good to have another browser choice on the platform. I can't remember the last time I used a Microsoft browser on the Mac! 

 

 

 

@Elliot Kirk  Not sure if this happened to anybody else, but I had to disable the defender browser protection as it kept flagging most sites I went to, including al MS site's, as "This website has been reported as unsafe". Other than that so far so good.

 

Edit: One note, I have the defender browser protection extension used with google chrome on the mac, and it doesn't flag the same sites unsafe.

Love the look, but have an issue that everytime I open Edge it says it's not syncing and I have to log out and back in and it'll work for a while but the stops again

@Elliot Kirk 

 

Similar to above poster, I am unable to sync at all in Edge for MacOS, using latest build Version 76.0.167.0 (Official build) Canary (64-bit) 

 

I can sign out, remove accounts, re-add them, etc, and after telling it to sync it just goes back to "Not Syncing" status, mine doesn't even work for a short time, just doesn't work at all.

 

Have tried two different Outlook accounts, same exact issue. Was working fine until yesterday's build.

@Elliot Kirk Same issue as people above me. Unable to sync anything using my Microsoft account. I am on Version 76.0.167.0 (Official build) Canary (64-bit)

@Elliot Kirk-- I'm unable to install and test on MacOS 10.12. On the troubleshooting page, it says Edge Insider builds are "available on macOS 10.10 Yosemite or higher", but after I downloaded the Canary 76.0.167.0 installer package, it says "Microsoft Edge Canary Update 76.0.167.0 can't be installed on this disk. OS X version 10.12 or later is required" (see attached screenshot).

I'm hopeful this is just an installer config snafu and can be easily corrected.

@Elliot Kirk -- Very Important feature missing on Edge with MacOS... the microphone does not work when using the Google Search web page even when Google has been given microphone access.  Test at other pages show the mic is accepting audio into the browser but it refuses to take the audio on Google's page.  This needs to be fixed.  Pushing the mic icon on the Google web page will not take audio input.

@Elliot Kirk 

 

In today's 76.0.168.0, syncing is still broken but differently so.

 

If I sign out and back in, it works temporarily- until I close the browser. But once I re-open it, syncing is broken again.

@callofthevoid i have the same issue works ok until i close it then have to sign out and back in for it to work 

I talked with the Sync team on Friday afternoon, and they told me that there is an issue with the authentication which is needed for sync to work. We believe that we have the right fix for this and it should make it into the Canary channel early next week.

I can't install extensions from Edge Store, but I can use extensions from Chrome Web Store. Please fix it. It seems that Edge Store is only available for Windows 10, not for macOS.

Can confirm 76.0.172.0 is syncing just fine for me, so appears fixed! 8)

Also noticed they enabled syncing of Settings, so a nice two-in-one update. Thank you (and the Sync team) :thumbs_up:

Question to anyone that can answer- are there detailed release notes for each daily build? I'd be interested to see what changes from day-to-day.

@callofthevoid 

That would only apply to Canary.  And would be nice, but, no there is not.

There is sort of one following the wkly updates to Dev.

@Elliot Kirk 

It is, also, going to (future tense) support Linux.

"I can't remember the last time I used a Microsoft browser on the Mac! "

Did you or would you have ever (before)?  Maybe, why you can't recall.

@Elliot Kirk So far, my experience with the  Microsoft Edge (Canary) for masOS has been great. Apparently, it is not fully complete functionality wise, but it is fast, energy efficient, works with all the sites that I have been testing.

 

I prefer Edge to Chrome, Brave, Opera, Vivaldi, and Firefox, not to mention the stock Apple Safari (which I hate because of too many gimmicks).

I'm very impressed with Microsoft Edge (Developer) running on MacOS. It's fast, stable and intuitive. I can see this quickly replacing Safari as my default browser. Great job Edge Team! Please keep up the excellent work.
Hi,
is it true that you are planning to bring IE11 mode to new edge under macosx?
When it will be available?

@Elliot Kirk 

 

Right now, I’m pretty impressed with Edge for macOS. It is stable, responsive, and heading in the right direction. Edge didn’t last long on my iPad, but this implementation might move me and my school from Chrome.

 

From my limited testing, Edge seems to use less RAM, but perhaps more CPU cycles. (It isn’t an entirely fair comparison, Edge 76 vs Chrome 74, but still…)

 

Even though you will continue to “expand dark mode next week,” your implementation is already better than some browsers, namely Google Chrome.

 

I wonder if web pages will be able to override dark mode when your implementation is finished. For example, the Google Doc where I’m writing this still has white contextual menus.

 

Question 01: Is the grammar tool accessible via the macOS version of Microsoft Edge Canary? Reading this article, I cannot seem to make it work. Honestly, that is (will be) a compelling reason to use Edge in the education market.

 

Question 02: What are the hardware and software requirements for MS Edge for macOS?

 

Question 03: Google is killing off some (if not most or all) of the ad-blocking features in Chrome. Is Microsoft Edge going to go the same route?

@Elliot Kirk Apparently installing Edge DEV on macOS also installs Microsoft AutoUpdate and at some point launches an unexpected pop-up window about a Required Data Notice.

 

I installed Edge DEV on my macOS Mojave v10.14.5 on 7/3/2019. Edge DEV has indicated it has updated itself on a couple launches but this morning (7/19/2019) I found this pop-up window dialog from a process called Microsoft AutoUpdate displaying a Required Data Notice that has a Learn More link and an OK button.

 

RequiredDataNoticePopUp.png

 

Edge DEV was not running at this point.

 

Clicking the Learn More link takes you to: Essential services for Office but there is nothing in this article about Edge DEV being part of the Microsoft Office universe...

 

According to Activity Monitor, this Microsoft AutoUpdate PID is pegging percent CPU in the high 90% range, using around 45.3 MB of real memory. Activity Monitor sampling suggests this is Microsoft AutoUpdate version (4.13 - 4.13.19071800).

 

The only Microsoft applications I have installed on my mac are Microsoft Remote Desktop, currently  v10.2.13 (1593) which I've been using for several years and now Edge DEV. I have never seen this Microsoft AutoUpdate until this morning and as I mentioned above there is no reference to EdgeDEV or Microsoft Remote Desktop in that Learn More link about essential services.

 

Since Edge DEV was my likely culprit, I fired up the macOS system report and went to the Software > Installations section which shows that, indeed, I installed Edge DEV on 7/3/2019 _and_ Microsoft AutoUpdate was also installed on 7/3/2019.

 

SoftwareInstallationsInfo.png

 

There is also a second entry for Microsoft AutoUpdate for this morning (7/19/2019) but you can see from the attached screenshot that the system report is not capturing the Microsoft AutoUpdate version string in the version column which is also true for Microsoft Edge DEV although the Software Name column is reflecting that I have Microsoft Edge Dev Update 77.0.197.1 installed. 

 

I have not been keeping an eye on the version string so I don't know what I started with and what has changed. The macOS system report suggests you aren't installing Edge DEV on macOS in such a way that the version installation is captured the way it should be. E.g. a new row with relevant installation date and version string in the version column.

 

Based on what I found with Activity Monitor process sampling, there is a version string available for Microsoft AutoUpdate so you guys should be able to have the macOS system installation auditing include the missing version string.

 

I suggest specifically pointing this issue out clearly during Microsoft Edge for macOS installation so folks are not surprised at seeing this suddenly appear one day. Fixing the macOS system report software installations information thread would be helpful too so there is less mystery surrounding this process.

 

Searching the web for macOS and Microsoft AutoUpdate yields a bunch of unpleasant results, one in particular claiming Microsoft AutoUpdate is a trojan and earnestly trying to convince you to download and install their recommended clean up program - sigh....

 

EDIT: After posting this I went ahead and clicked OK on the Microsoft AutoUpdate window and then launched Edge which opened a tab showing that I had been updated to Edge, build 77.0.211.3 which does not match what my system report says I have installed and so far at least, my system report has not updated to indicate any change to what it was already showing for Microsoft Edge:

HTH

Working great so far, way less resources then the other browsers I am using, seems very fast for general browsing and good for video/audio streaming.

 

Found a small bug so far, the 'Save' button when editing bookmarks does not work. If I Press the 'enter' key to save the change it take but if I press save the url looks like it changes but when I click the bookmark it opens the old URL. I was able to recreate this over and over. @Elliot Kirk 

Did you know that there is a Beta channel out now?

Going to the Insider website, the Beta channel is now available!
