Microsoft had been working on a Chromium-based Edge browser for some time now, and it has now released the stable version of the Chromium-based Edge browser.
The new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser sports a different user interface than the one offered with the built-in (old) Edge browser. Since the new Edge browser is based on Chromium, it naturally sports a Google Chrome-like user interface.
Chromium-based Edge browser for Windows 10
The new Microsoft Edge is based on the same engine that powers Google Chrome. Because Microsoft Edge is now based on the Chromium browser, it has a lot in common with Chrome.
Coming to features, many of the features and options present in the Google Chrome browser are either turned off or replaced. For instance, Chrome cleanup, Google Now, and Chrome OS monitor has been removed.
In addition to Windows 10, the new Chromium-based Edge browser is also available for macOS, Android, and iOS operating systems as well.
If you are wondering, you can install Chromium-based Edge alongside the built-in Edge browser on your Windows 10 PC and use both of them simultaneously, but that requires a small workaround. Besides that, you don’t need to be running an insider build of Windows 10 to install the new Edge.

Step 1: Visit the Edge page of the Microsoft website in any web browser. Click on the Download button (click on the arrow icon next to the Download button to download Edge for an earlier version of Windows) to download the newest version of the Chromium-based Edge browser for Windows 10.
