Microsoft Edge Heads to M1 Macs in Preview

Posted on December 17, 2020 by Paul Thurrott in Mac and macOS, Microsoft Edge with 25 Comments

Microsoft revealed last night that owners of M1-based Macs can now test a native version of Microsoft Edge in preview.

“You asked, and we delivered,” the Microsoft Edge team tweeted. “Native support for Mac ARM64 devices is now available in our Canary channel. Download it today from our Microsoft Edge Insiders website.”

That website has downloads for just about any operating system imaginable, including some that don’t even exist yet, like Windows 10X. But it’s also fair to point out that Microsoft is a bit behind its competition when it comes to M1 compatibility: Safari, Chrome, and Firefox are all available in native app form on the new Macs already, and not just in preview.

Still, a win is a win, and if I were to use a Mac for some reason, Edge would be my choice. Even in preview.
