According to Microsoft’s blog post, Edge for macOS will offer the same new browsing experience that is being previewed on Windows, with user experience optimizations “to make it feel at home on a Mac.”

The new Microsoft Edge preview builds for macOS are available through preview channels that we call “Microsoft Edge Insider Channels.” We are starting by launching the Microsoft Edge Insider Canary Channel, which you can download and try at the Microsoft Edge Insider site.

Microsoft says the Dev Channel will be released very soon, and once available, users will be able to download and install it side-by-side with the Canary Channel.
