If your Windows 10 PC hasn’t updated to the new version of Microsoft Edge, here’s how to get it. This browser will be a big change. It’s based off Chromium, the same framework as Google Chrome browser. Microsoft has given up on the idea of it’s own proprietary structure for a browser in favor of one that’s compatible with more programs and add-ons.

To install the new version, follow this link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/edge?form=MO12GB&OCID=MO12GB

Then, click on Download. You can click that drop-down arrow to also find versions for Windows 8.1, Android, Mac, and iPhone.
