As announced today, Microsoft has released a new Chromium-based Web Browser Edge in its latest version. According to the information provided by this group, running slightly differently than the first division.
Update the new version of Microsoft Edge
New browser Edge can now be downloaded in all ready versions of Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, macOS, iOS and Android.

The new browser is available in over 90 languages - but that doesn’t mean the right language pack is currently loading automatically. I think we’ve got a Russian package:
A good gesture is to just wait a little longer.
According to Windows Corporate Vice President Joe Belfiore, the release of the new version is now a small milestone as the development team has done so much over the past few weeks: “The past few months have been very inspiring for all of us.
In Windows We are working to provide great new features for Microsoft Edge, including AAD Support, Internet Explorer Mode, Streaming 4K, Dolby Audio, Inking in PDF, Microsoft Search in Bing integration, Chrome Support for extensions,
Users themselves can download and install the Edge browser on the Chromium engine from the official website or wait for the next update of Windows 10. Note that the distribution of Microsoft Edge through Windows Update is gradual and some users will have to wait.
