Microsoft’s RemoteEdge will stream Edge browser to other platforms

Microsoft is working to make its apps compatible with other platforms and in line with its mission, announced that its RemoteEdge browser would stream a virtual version of Edge on platforms such as Mac and Linux. This means developers not working on Windows 10 can check out Microsoft’s latest browser for themselves. And to make things simpler, Microsoft decided to use its Azure cloud service for RemoteEdge. In this manner, developers working on other platforms won’t have to download an OS specific client.

When you launch Internet Explorer from the Remote client app, a real preview version of the browser opens into a new window on your operating system, much like any other app you might have running. This version of Internet Explorer is modified to host the latest preview version of the EdgeHTML rendering engine, so you can test how your site will render in Microsoft Edge.
Remote app clients are a great solution if Microsoft browsers are not available for your operating system, or if you’d like to test the preview version of the browser without installing it directly on your machine.
Remote is available for Windows, Mac OSX, iOS, and Android., Microsoft informs users.

If you’re interested in testing RemoteEdge, go to the Microsoft Edge developers’ page and follow these steps:

  1. Download and install the Remote client for your device
  2. From the Remote client, launch Azure RemoteApp and the sign in
  3. Go to your list of Remote Apps and launch Internet Explorer
  4. Enter a URL and start browsing. Edge behaves like a local app, so there should be no functionality issues. The only visible difference is that you cannot change the settings for the remote browser.

RemoteEdge is expected to be released this month for developers, so stay tuned for more details.
