Last month Microsoft revealed that its future browser. Edge is coming for MacOS. While I'm no fan of the browser on Windows, this is great news for all web artisans who should test our creations in at least the major browsers:
To some extend you might say Opera and for some cases Internet Explorer, but you can read more in this article why Internet Explorer should be left for the past ( link ) and that it has been completely unsupported for 3 years now.
Why this move from Microsoft to release its browser for MacOS, and hopefully Linux/Ubuntu too, is an important one, despite it might not be effective, you can read more about in the before linked article.
Be aware that it's still a developer insider preview, bugs are probably likely to occur – hopefully just to the browser itself and not the rendering of pages.

Too bad it's Chromium-based, now I can't help but feel there are very minimal reasons for both developers and end users to really care.
In any case, it's neat to see it coming to macOS. It's been such a long time since a Microsoft browser was running on a Macintosh, back when Internet Explorer was its primary browser!
