Windows 7 and 8 Get Some Fancy Chromium Edge Highlights
Windows 7 And 8 Are Almost EOL, But Here’s A New Feature For Them
You don’t have to switch to Windows 10 to experience Chromium flavoured Edge, as Microsoft have just granted you the ability to preview it on Windows 7 and 8. You won’t get the full experience that Win10 and Mac users are testing as there is no access to Azure Active Directories nor can you enable dark mode, which is what all the cool programs are doing nowadays.
The browser is very much a beta test, so expect to run into interesting issues. The good news is it installs alongside IE, so you won’t lose your ability to visit websites with your creaky old light blue web browser. Check it out if you are curious.
The Edge browser launched with Windows 10 is already available in Insider Preview in its new form, running on Google's Chromium engine. Now, the preview has been opened to Windows 7 and 8 users.
