Microsoft's Chromium Edge Browser Will Be Available on Windows 7 and 8

Microsoft's Chromium Edge browser was previously only available on Windows 10 but has since been retrofitted to work on both Windows 7 and Windows 8. The browser was first released two months ago.

Microsoft says the browser will work essentially the same on older versions of Windows as it does on the current version. The brand notes that the browser is meant to empower developers to build with reduced fragmentation. Additionally, the Chromium Edge browser on older versions will have the same developer tools.

The company notes there are some issues with the first builds of the browser -- which include an inability to support dark modes and limited support for AAD signing -- but has indicated that it is working to solve those issues.
