More about Microsoft Edge service

Microsoft Edge is a cross-platform web browser created and developed by Microsoft. It was first released for Windows 10 and Xbox One in 2015, for Android and iOS in 2017, for macOS in 2019, and for Linux in 2020, and can replace Internet Explorer on Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 and later versions but unlike IE, this browser does not support Windows Vista or earlier versions. The Chromium-based Edge replaced Internet Explorer in Windows 11, as the default web browser. Edge was initially built with Microsoft's own proprietary browser engine EdgeHTML and their Chakra JavaScript engine, a version now referred to as Microsoft Edge Legacy. In December 2018, Microsoft announced plans to rebuild the browser as Chromium-based with Blink and V8 engines. During development, Microsoft made preview builds of Edge available on Windows 7, 8/8.1, 10, and macOS. Microsoft announced the public release of the new Edge on January 15, 2020.
