The new Edge browser can now be installed on Windows 10 32-bit

Two weeks ago Microsoft released the first preview version of their new Edge browser based on Chromium. Initially, the new Edge browser was available only for Windows 10 users with 64-bit OS installations. If you have tried to install the new Edge browser on Windows 10 32-bit, you received the following error:

Error 3 or error code: 0x80040154, with the message that Microsoft Edge cannot be installed on that version of Windows.

With the Canary release updated to v75, Edge browser now supports Windows 10 32-bit OS as well. So, if you are running a 32-bit version of Windows 10 and would like to try the new Edge browser, you can get it from here.

Have in mind that currently there are two Edge installers available. The Dev channel, which is updated weekly, while the Canary Channel is updated on a daily basis. If you would like to have a more stable beta version of the browser, we recommend using the Dev Channel.

After you install the new Edge you might notice many similarities with the popular Chrome browser. The new Edge browser behaves just like the Chrome, although I have noticed that it performs slightly faster and has a nicer GUI than Chrome.

The new Edge browser supports all extensions that are available in the Google Chrome store, even though Microsoft has removed many Chromium features from the new Edge browser. Additionally, Microsoft soon plans to release the new Edge browser for Windows 7, 8/8.1 and MacOS operating systems as well.
