Microsoft Edge installation and configuration

Edge replaces Microsoft's legacy browser Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) and is based on the same Chromium open-source code base as Google Chrome.

Edge is the default browser on new Windows versions. However, it is available for other platforms like macOS and Linux, too.



Most Chrome extensions should be installable in Edge, too. Extensions like axe are additionally distributed directly via Microsoft's Edge Add-ons page.

IE 11

The installation and setup instructions for IE 11 are still available here.
