Chromium Edge for macOS supports IE mode

Chromium-based Edge is bringing some amazing new features. The new Microsoft Edge browser features Fluent Design UI elements, extended privacy controls, as well as an IE mode.

These features seem to impress macOS users as well. For example, one users asked Microsoft if IE Mode will be offered to Mac users as well.

Is the IE tab going to exist on the macOS version or will that be Windows specific?

Microsoft told the Redditor that IE mode on Chromium-Edge is a Windows specific feature. That means it won’t be available on macOS.

IE mode will be supported where IE11 is currently supported so yes, it is Windows specific. Thanks!

So, if you’re a Mac user and you want to test all the new features that Edge brings to the table, the only solution is to switch to Windows 10. Or simply ask a friend to let you test Chromium Edge on his/her Windows 10 PC.

Microsoft is getting ready to revamp Edge

Microsoft is currently testing the new Edge browser and a stable release is expected to be available later this year.

The company does not want to go for a sudden release. Indeed, Microsoft needs to work on polishing the key features and then fix the issues reported by Windows Insiders.

The big M recently announced that it is bringing new autoplay media settings in Chromium Edge. This will allow users to block the video advertisements they see on different webpages.

Well, we need to wait for a few more months until the official Edge version is rolled out. Meanwhile, you can try the Preview builds.
