Microsoft has adopted the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility. This new Microsoft Edge runs on the same Chromium web engine as the Google Chrome browser, offering you best in class web compatibility and performance.

The new Chromium based Microsoft Edge is supported on all versions of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server (2016 and above), Windows Server (2008 R2 to 2012 R2), and macOS.

By default, when you open a new tab (Ctrl+T) in Microsoft Edge, you see a Bing search bar, Bing image of the day as the background, quick links as tiles of your most visited sites, and Bing news content visible to scroll.

Microsoft Edge will automatically add quick links of websites you visit to the New Tab page. You can remove, rename, or add new quick links as wanted.

Starting with Microsoft Edge Canary version 92.0.880.0, you can stay up to date on your Outlook email right from the Microsoft Edge new tab page beside your current quick links. You will start to see incoming emails directly from the new tab page of Microsoft Edge. With the new smart tile for Outlook, you can see your three most recent emails and also start a new email or meeting request in Outlook, directly from the new tab page.

You will need to sign in to Microsoft Edge with the same account you use for Outlook to enable this feature.
